Top Paper Awards

ABE believes in rewarding success. Every session, we honour our highest achievers in each unit with a special Top Paper Award.  The Award recognises the role centres play in their student's success and ABE publicises this contribution. Both the learner and the centre/tutor receive a certification of recognition.
