We would like to congratulate this year's ICSA Guernsey Awards winners and thank all the guests and sponsors who joined us at the Old Government House Hotel on 9 November 2018 to celebrate the achievements of ICSA students and members in Guernsey.
This year we were pleased to welcome Monty Halls as our guest speaker. Broadcaster, travel writer, marine biologist and former Royal Marine Monty brought his unique take on leadership to Guernsey. Winner of Channel 4’s Superhuman, and most recently seen on TV in Channel 4’s My Family and the Galapagos, naturalist and leadership specialist Monty regaled the audience with tales of his ventures in some of the most remote environments on earth presenting wildlife and adventure documentaries.

BPP has been preparing students for the examinations of professional bodies for over 35 years.
In the Channel Islands, BPP is ICSA’s Preferred Tuition Partner, offering ‘face to face’ and ‘online recorded’ courses for IFA Level 4, 5 and CSQS, plus ‘online live’ lecture courses for CSQS. Their award winning ‘online live’ courses allow students to attend scheduled lectures wherever they are located; these have proved incredibly successful as an alternative to face to face classes. The ‘online recorded’ study method utilises pre-recorded lectures which students have access to 24/7, right up until the day of their exam. The lectures have been recorded by an experienced team of tutors and are supported by excellent study materials which include a study text, course notes, practice and revision kit and programmed mock exams. BPP also offer lifetime pass assurance which means that in the event of a student not passing their exam, they can re-sit their course, for free, until they pass.
