Alisha Berry from Croydon, has been chosen from more than 1½ million candidates to receive a prestigious City & Guilds Medal for Excellence in recognition of her achievements whilst studying for the Institute of Legal Executives (ILEX) Certificate for Legal Secretaries.

Alisha, who works as a Claims advisor for Crawford & Company, was acknowledged at a glittering ceremony in London on April 14th hosted by City & Guilds. The City & Guilds Medals for Excellence programme rewards outstanding people: Only students whose dedication and talent enables them to produce work of an exceptional standard are eligible for the medals. This year, only 120 City & Guild students in Britain receive awards, of which three were ILEX students.

“My congratulations to Alisha,” said ILEX President, Lesley Graham. “The City & Guilds Medals for Excellence recognise the very best students in the country. To have someone who is undertaking an ILEX course win one of these prestigious Medals is proof that the link we have forged with City & Guilds is paying dividends through the caliber of student achieving their qualifications. This is also proof of the quality of the courses we run for legal secretaries, paralegal and support staff. We are confident that these courses are now the best of their kind available.”

Commenting on her win, Alisha said “she was over the moon. It’s really nice to be recognised when you work hard. It’s even better to be rewarded for it.”
