CVQO awarded Princess Royal Training Award

We’re delighted to announce that CVQO has been awarded a prestigious Princess Royal Training Award by the Princess Royal and City & Guilds Group!

CVQO was nominated in April based on the delivery of our qualifications to volunteer adults. In June we had an intensive site visit by the award committee members, with the results being presented to The Princess Royal herself.

The Princess Royal makes the final decision who is to be rewarded and today, on her birthday, we have received confirmation that CVQO has achieved the award, along with just 43 other organisations across the UK.

Further details about the award and the other recipients can be found at the following website:
