IFD College award now open for nominations

01/09/2020   //   No Comments

From 1st September, nominations are welcomed for the Independent Funeral Directors’ (IFD) College’s new award: 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.

Those challenges may be, for example, personal, domestic, educational or physical. Nominees must be currently studying an IFDC training course of have completed a course in the year March 2019 to March 2020.

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 July 2021.
