Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal welcomed Training 2000 to Banqueting House in London to celebrate successfully achieving a Princess Royal Training Award for its commitment to training and development.
The Princess Royal Training Awards, now in its seventh year, recognise employers from both large organisations to small charities across the United Kingdom who deliver outstanding training and development programmes that have had a direct impact on their people and organisations.
With skills shortages across the UK increasing and job vacancies doubling, creating engaging learning programmes to grow and retain new and existing talent has never been more crucial.
Training 2000 intended to build its management and leadership capability to enhance business delivery and boost retention levels. Business performance and achievement rates improved, and the strong development pathway is attracting aspiring leaders whilst retaining internal leaders. Cost savings are being made through learner projects, with one case resulting in a saving of £150,000.
Louise Hedge, apprenticeship delivery manager at Training 2000 accepted the award and on reflection said: “This award is fantastic recognition for the CPD plan that we have in place at Training 2000, in particular how as a company we have been able to develop competent aspiring leaders, leaders and managers who support, challenge, stretch and engage their teams and the wider workforce to drive performance and operational excellence.
"I was thrilled to be provided with the opportunity to accept this award on behalf of Training 2000, Her Royal Highness was very humbling and showed humour throughout the various conversations I had with her on the day; the whole experience was not only very surreal but one I will forever value.”
Vicky Fort, lead account manager at Training 2000, said: "It is fantastic to see Training 2000 being rewarded for its quality ILM Level 5 provision and for providing internal colleagues the opportunity to be upskilled.
"I firmly believe that the ILM L5 Apprenticeship was a significant contributing factor to my recent promotion into a managerial role, equipping me with the skills, knowledge and behaviours and self-confidence to be an effective people manager."
