9 April 2009 pr 21.09

Three students training for career in law through the Institute of Legal Executives (ILEX) have beaten more than 1 million vocational learners across the country to scoop a prestigious City & Guilds Medal for Excellence.

The City & Guilds Medals for Excellence programme rewards outstanding people. Only students whose dedication and talent shows work of an exceptional standard are eligible for the medals. This year, only 97 City & Guilds students in the whole of Britain received awards, including the three students who won medals for their legal studies:

  • Heather Coltman from Sacrisdon, Co Durham for her studies towards the Level 2 ILEX Certificate in Vocational Paralegal Studies
  • Kirsty McCarthy from Welling, Kent for her studies leading to the ILEX Level 3 Diploma for Legal Secretaries
  • Sylvia Nalule, from Hounslow, London also for her studies leading to the ILEX Level 3 Diploma for Legal Secretaries.

“This is a tremendous result for these three students,” said ILEX President, Mark Bishop.”The City & Guilds Medals for Excellence recognise only the very best students in the country.

“To have three students who have undertaken ILEX courses win these prestigious Medals is proof that the links we have forged with City & Guilds, are paying dividends, both in terms of the quality of our students and the quality of the courses we have designed for them in conjunction with the City & Guilds.”
