Don’t underestimate the prestige and reputation a City&Guilds Assured certificate and logo will bring to your business. It’s probably the most well recognised and respected qualification in the UK.
Of course it’s true that potential clients won’t book you just because of your qualifications, they will also want to see your portfolio. Most clients will look a 4-6 Photographers and contact 2-3 of them, so what will make them choose to look at you instead of the dozens of your competitors?
Which website would you choose to click on or contact when looking for a professional or tradesmen? The one that has no recognisable accreditation, or the one has a City&Guilds accreditation and logo on their website?
All our courses come with a City&Guilds Assured certificate along with the right to use their logo. The lectures are supported with many practical shoots, both in the studio and on location that will provide you with hands on training and the opportunity to create a comprehensive portfolio to show clients.
Our courses are unique and the only ones that will give you the opportunity to build a comprehensive portfolio as well as achieving a City&Guilds Assured certificate and logo to use for your marketing and website.
As a City&Guilds Training Centre we are subject to an annual audit and Quality Assurance inspection by City&Guilds. The audit is of the training centre facilities , staff and the delivery and outcomes of our courses and includes inspection of students work, our assessment of their work and interviews with ex-students. This means you can be assured that all our courses continue to meet the highest quality standards.
As well as being a contemporary photographic studio FPP also have the honour of being an assured City&Guilds training centre and an ELCAS approved learning provider (Approved training provider for the UK Armed Forces).
