Our Story

Established over a decade ago, in 2011, you can be sure we know what we’re doing. Focus Awards was founded on three core values – Honesty, Integrity and Fairness – that still underpin everything we do.

You can rely on us to be honest and transparent in all our dealings with you, and with our staff and stakeholders.

Integrity means we’ll do what we say we’ll do, when we say we’ll do it, and hold all our people to account for you.

Plus, we treat you and everyone with whom we come into contact fairly and even-handedly. We put people before profit and treat our customers as the valuable business partners they truly are. Your success really is our business.

We back these core values with an absolute commitment to Excellence. All our people, from the Governance Board and Senior Management Team to the staff that handle your queries over the phone or email, are die-hard self-improvers.

We love to learn, and respect others similarly dedicated to continuing personal and professional development. We’re here for you, so don’t hesitate to get in touch whenever we can help you.

Focus Awards draws on more than 80 years’ combined Awarding Organisation experience and almost 300 years’ commercial expertise amassed by its founders.

You have access to experts that come from a diversity of professional backgrounds, including the health and fitness sector, social services, and academia. Commerce and industry, recruitment, the Paralegal profession and the Armed Forces are also represented.

Strategic and operational management teams deliver outstanding mentorship and guidance. Their direction and stewardship have a positive impact on all aspects of the business. They focus on consistent development, long-term performance, and the relentless pursuit of excellence.

We’ve helped dozens of training providers and educational establishments just like you get the best from their businesses by giving confidence and choice to their learners. You can rely on us to do the same for you.

We are dedicated to you and your learners – our business can only succeed and grow if we help you blaze a trail down the same path.
