12 November 2015 – It is widely known, in the public domain, that Train2Game is leading the way bringing City & Guilds to the gaming sector.
This decision was not taken lightly and followed an extensive period of consultation with our students who persuaded us to go the City and Guilds route.
Subsequently, a tiny number of students, for reasons unknown, claimed this was a retrograde step, one deciding to raise the issue with the Financial Ombudsman Service.
The Ombudsman service stated in their findings, “I think that in this case the alternative offered is a better quality product…..”
Adding, “……the new qualification is more widely recognised internationally and is more prestigious so likely to lead to better opportunities for students”.
The Ombudsman service also stated, “I am persuaded that the new qualification offered is better than Mr S signed up for. If he had completed the course I think it is likely he would have been in a better position to get a job”.
Train2Game welcomes the final decision and endorsement of the Ombudsman that the complaint was unfounded and that City and Guilds exam (qualification) is superior to TIGA exam (qualification).
In view of this decision Train2Game will continue to lead the way bringing the “more prestigious” qualification(s) to its students and to the gaming sector via City & Guilds.
