The Independent Awards Standards Council – Trust Mark Scheme

We have been accredited with an Outstanding in the Awards Trust Mark scheme. Outstanding is the greatest accreditation you can achieve.

What is an Awards Trust Mark?

The Awards Trust Mark is the official accreditation presented by the Independent Awards Standards Council. It takes into account all aspects of the process, including feedback from entrants and the judges. This accreditation enhances the trust between those entering awards schemes and those running them.

We apply to the scheme each year with the aim of maintaining the trust mark to encourage more entries and sponsorship due to the high level of professionalism the awards exhibit. The judges scrutinise everything from criteria, scoring and feedback, to transparency and judging. 

How do you achieve this award?

Ben Thomas,
Managing Director of All Things Business

Getting the Awards Trust Mark accreditation again this year is proof to us that we’re doing things the right way. It’s always been important for us to be open and transparent about the awards and how the finalists and winners are selected and it means a lot to us that this is recognised. Each year we learn about what works best, and we now feel confident that we deliver the best-organised awards events in Northamptonshire.
Using that as a platform to extend out into Milton Keynes and recognise the fantastic work of its education sector is something we’re very excited about.
