A note from ABC Awards

As of the 1st September 2018, ABC Awards’s legal name has changed to Skills and Education Group Awards.

However, as known and recognised names, ”ABC Awards” and “Certa Awards” will remain as the brands in the market, benefiting from the support, expertise and resources provided by Skills and Education Group Awards.

In addition we have also updated our Quality Licence Scheme brand which will be reflected in our new website, brochure and via learner certificates of achievements.
