84% of students passed the Professional Jewellers? Diploma October
The National Association of Goldsmiths (NAG) has kicked off its 65th year of retail jeweller examinations with more excellent pass rates for its JET examinations. 84% of students passed the Professional Jewellers’ Diploma taken in October last year, while 70% gained their Professional Jewellers’ Gemstone Diploma.
“We are delighted with the results once again” said Victoria Wingate, NAG Education Manager. “These courses build staff confidence, develop selling skills and product knowledge, which are so important in the current economic climate. Ultimately these results will put money in the till!”
This year will also mark 65 years since the first ever NAG exam in 1945.
“The courses have been developing and evolving since 1945, but remain as vital as ever” added Victoria. “We have a few things planned to mark this milestone starting with our summer holiday themed promotion at Spring Fair in February and of course the Presentation of Awards in March”
Successful exam candidates will receive their diplomas at a lavish awards ceremony at Goldsmiths’ Hall on 10th March 2010.
