Graduates of the BPMA education programme were flying high when they received their hard-earned TPM certificates at The Royal Air Force Club.
Graduates who attended a stately ceremony were awarded their certificates by BPMA head of education Daniela Arena and director general Gordon Glenister. The event took place in the Mayfair venue’s Battle of Britain Suite.
Education is at the forefront of the BPMA strategy and many companies have embraced the opportunity to train their staff through the BPMA education programme, with some including this in their staff induction and training process.
Commenting, Daniela Arena said: “I have got to know many of the learners. Those that succeed, even if they have to take the exam twice, have worked hard and it means a lot to them. Some study over the weekends which is a testament to their commitment and drive to succeed. I invigilate the exams. I’ve seen tears of joy, tears of sadness, I have seen frustration when they have been just one question away from passing and I see that real sense of achievement when they have passed, which is why it is an honour and privilege to reward and give recognition for their achievement and commitment to their professional development.”
Many of the graduates attending the celebration signed up to the fast track February programme.
The idea behind the fast track programme is to help individuals create the time for learning and to deliver a hard-hitting educational punch.
The fast track programme allows learners to attend an introductory seminar, experience factory visits and log in to the training portal to study content, before sitting an invigilated exam. Learners are still in control and have to be self-disciplined, but they have the flexibility to study at the office or at home in the evenings and benefit from industry specific training all within a short time frame but without jeopardising the quality of the learning.

What the Achievers Said
“The course and qualification has given our customers verification that I know what I’m talking about, so my clients can trust in me and I can increase my client base.”
AlexBrown, Outstanding Branding
“We are really impressed with the BPMA education programme and feel it’s important to take up as much education that is available. The TPM certificate proves that you are qualified to do the job and you are learning about the industry.”
Lexi Gatte, Simoney
“If you have experience in the industry why would you not share it? I’m keen to share the insights of my daily routine and struggles. If it helps others overcome that then why would you not do it? A supplier needs to think like a distributor and a distributor needs to think like a supplier. Education is the way forward for the industry and to make sure this industry keeps thriving.”
Ben Chamberlain, Orchard Melamine Products, one of the content contributors to the education programme
Nine staff from Allwag Promotions passed their TPM exams in March 2018. Their achievements were recognised by Allwag and the BPMA at a special celebratory evening where the BPMA’s head of education, Daniela Arena and director general, Gordon Glenister were invited to hand out the certificates.
