exceptional CIPFA students receive awards

11-04-2013

The CIPFA annual prize winners’ ceremony took place on 11 April. Prizes were awarded to those students who achieved the best performance in each paper of CIPFA’s Professional Qualification in 2012.

Prize winners include Dean Gibbs, who won the Arthur Collins Memorial Medal and the Richard Emmott Memorial Medal. The Eric Gilliland Memorial Medal was awarded to Sam Jarrett.

All bar two of the prize winners attended tuition courses at the CIPFA Education and Training Centre.

Sir Tony Redmond, CIPFA President, who awarded the prizes, said,

“It is always a pleasure to recognise the achievements of our students. It is a great honour to present these awards and I would not be surprised to see one of the recipients one day take up the mantle of CIPFA President themselves.

“In these tough economic times, these students are already working to guide public sector decision making. They represent the future of the profession, I am sure that they have long and successful careers ahead of them.”
