2016 CIFE Awards at the House of Lords

London P14

On Thursday 7th April, the Council for Independent Further Education held their annual CIFE Award ceremony to celebrate the impressive academic achievements of students in each member college.

The ceremony is always an auspicious affair, held over afternoon tea in the Cholmondeley Room at the House of Lords, and this year was no different. The room was decorated beautifully and the prizewinning students were accompanied to the tea by proud family and friends; the atmosphere was animated and spirits were high.

MPW students had a hard act to follow after our strong performance in 2015 but results this summer were impressive and students scooped seven prizes, five for MPW London and a further two for MPW Birmingham.

Lord Lexden presented each student with a certificate to commemorate their achievements and a photographer was on hand to preserve the memories of what is always a fantastic event and a highlight of the MPW calendar. Being in the presence of so many bright and promising young people is always a humbling experience and this year was no different. It was a well-deserved celebration of their talent and success and I offer my sincere congratulations to all of the prizewinners.

Photographs of the event and a full list of MPW London prizewinners are provided below.
