National Workplace Learning Organisation Of Competence (Gold Award) 2023 By NACE

The Workplace Learning Organisation of Competence (GOLD) is conferred to organisations that have demonstrated effective and integrated learning systems, processes and practices in supporting the learning and development of its people.


Charity Transparency and Charity Governance Awards

The awards aim to promote good governance and transparency in the charity sector by acknowledging the excellent work done, and in turn inspiring others to adopt similar best practices. NAFA had won the Charity Transparency Award in 2019 before a pause for review by the Charity Council in 2020 and 2021, leading to a revamp with a more stringent compliance checklist implemented from 2022. A testament to our standards of excellence, NAFA was again honoured with the Charity Transparency Award in 2023.
