GQA Qualifications is delighted once again to be a main sponsor of the National Fenestration Awards.
Now in its third year, the awards are rapidly growing in popularity with the industry, and with 15 categories there is something for everybody.
“Supporting the National Fenestration Awards is really important to us at GQA Qualifications” says CEO Mick Clayton.
“It is important for us to be involved in this type of people recognition; it is into the fenestration industry that most of our qualifications are issued and we are more than keen to remain close to it so we can understand its requirements and respond to them”.
“Sponsoring the NFA’s seemed to us to be a logical step; they are becoming very popular and we are delighted to be on board. We are especially excited to be sponsoring the Young Person of the Year Award, a subject which is close to our heart, and we would recommend everybody to get involved”.
Speaking for the National Fenestration Awards Jason Grafton Holt commented “We’re delighted that GQA Qualifications are a main sponsor of the awards once again. When we first set out to expand the sponsorship of the awards, we wanted to work with companies that made a real difference to the industry, companies that had a real passion for what they do and a passion to make a difference. Once we had spoken to Mick Clayton, we knew we’d found an ideal partner”.
Supporting young people in the industry
“GQA Qualifications wants to promote initiatives such as apprenticeships to get new young talent flowing into the industry, and they’re at the forefront of delivering NVQ qualifications and MTC compliance. Their ethos around people fits in with our own ideals of rewarding the very best people and companies around, and especially those who often get overlooked”.
“It was their focus on apprenticeships that impressed us the most. As the awards were set up we purposely created the Young Person category to dispel the myth that the majority of all young people were lazy and didn’t want to work. GQA honed in on that category in particular and decided that they wanted to put their name to it”.
“They have been with us from the outset and their support early on ensured that the National Fenestration Awards grew from an online experiment into a fully fledged genuine industry awards”.
“The support for the awards from GQA Qualifications has been fantastic and we hope to continue working with them for a long time to come”.
“We would absolutely encourage all companies to nominate their young people and to get involved in these awards”.
