Celebrate your success!
As part of our ongoing commitment to develop the Registered Tuition Provider scheme and enhancing the benefits of membership, we’re launching a new awards initiative this summer.
The awards will offer opportunities for additional recognition and promotion of our RTPs, including those able to achieve better than average pass rates across three Case Study windows in 2020 (criteria apply).
As this is a new initiative, we’re only able to offer two awards this year BUT we hope to extend next year and offer broader categories and more awards, meaning more opportunities to celebrate success.
The two awards for 2020 are:
- Global Pass Rates Excellence Award— Providers achieving this award will receive a new dedicated “ Global Pass Rates Excellence” logo that can be displayed for a full year.
- Student of the Year Award 2020 — A great opportunity for you to nominate an “outstanding” student/s and for us all to share in and celebrate their success.
Global Pass Rates Excellence Award
This award is open to all RTPs who meet the qualifying criteria. To offer a fair and statistically reliable recognition of excellent Case Study pass rates, the criteria for this award are outlined below.
We understand that this will mean the award is not suitable for smaller providers; we will be looking into awards to recognise a broader group of providers in the future.
**Note: All providers able to meet the criteria and achieve pass rates above the global average for 2020 will be recognised and provided with a certificate, logo and promotion of their achievement.
We will contact all RTPs with information on how to apply shortly.
- Institutions offering tuition for Case Study Exams in May 2020, August 2020, November 2020
- Minimum 20 students entered at each level of Case Study (Operational, Management, at each of the three windows specified above; Please note “no shows” will not be counted
- Providers must commit to providing student data to CIMA in the format, and at the time, requested by us
Student of the Year Award
This award is open to all RTPs globally, and we encourage you all to think of students you feel are deserving of recognition for their achievements, commitment, advocacy for CIMA, success in challenging circumstances.
This is a great opportunity to celebrate and promote students’ successes, to showcase the many ways in which “outstanding” can be demonstrated. We’ll also recognise your role in (or simply pride in) their achievement.
We have not set hard and fast criteria for this award because we understand that there are many reasons why you might wish to nominate. We have suggested some possible categories and examples of achievement under each of these categories below:
Inspirational achievement in challenging circumstances:
A student who has overcome personal challenges e.g. accidents/ illnesses/disabilities; caring responsibilities; lack of access to support/technology/exam centres and so on;
Outstanding Academic Achievement
A record of achievement which will inspire others e.g. speed of progression through the qualification; resilience after hitting a challenging subject; first time passes in all subjects; top marks in all Case Studies;
A student who has been a powerful advocate for CIMA e.g. representing CIMA/their TP at careers events; advocating for CIMA in schools, universities; voluntary work eg as Treasurer of a community group; setting up peer to peer support or other networking opportunities for CIMA students.
Applications will be by video submission. We will contact all RTPs with information on how to apply shortly.
