Nominate a student for the Matthew Gallagher Achievement Award

February 16, 2021   //   No Comments

Do you know an Independent Funeral Directors’ (IFD) College student who is currently facing challenges or did whilst completing their course during March 2019 to March 2020? Those challenges may be, for example, personal, domestic, educational or physical.

Why not nominate the student, or nominate yourself if you’re a student, to be the first winner of the Matthew Gallagher Achievement Award?

Matthew, who served as a college governor, assessor and verifier, had a unique ability to encourage and find something good in every student’s work.  He was a master of inclusivity and vision.  It is, therefore, appropriate that this award is presented in his memory to a student who has overcome challenges to complete IFD College certificated units.

Nominations can come from employers, co-workers, or self-nominated. For the 2020/2021 award, nominations may be submitted from 1st September and will close at midnight on 30th April 2021. The award will be presented at the National Funeral Exhibition in June 2021.
