In 2020 the awards programme consists of five categories:

The Awards were announced on Monday 24 February 2020 and can be found here

Currently the Trust has three Bursaries to award:

  • The Educators-City and Guilds ‘match-funds’ Bursary Scheme that supports three applicants for professional development in vocational education and training. This includes a bursary endowed by Past Master Peter Warren.
  • The Geoffrey Bond Bursary for professional development of a tutor at the City and Guilds Art School
  • The Keith Hutton Bursary to support an educator in the Performing and Creative Arts

The Awards and Bursaries are presented at a glittering Annual Awards dinner in a splendid livery hall in the City.
