Now in their 25th year, the National Training Awards (NTAs) recognise and celebrate Investors in People accredited organisations that have delivered outstanding organisational benefits by directly linking the training needs of their people to the business needs of their organisation.
Entering the Awards offers Investors in People accredited organisations the opportunity to continually build on their successful training programmes, gaining public recognition for achieving success through developing their people year on year. Entrants will compete to be named the 'best of the best' on a regional and national level.
To support organisations throughout the entry process, free information seminars will be available during March and April, providing advice and top tips on how to prepare the best entry.
'At Paul, training is part of our culture and our people know they have the opportunity to develop and progress internally. Our training provided a clear set of career paths offering everyone the chance to progress at their own pace. As a result a drop of 28% was seen in staff turnover. By winning a National Training Award we know that our training is something to be proud of'.
Salina Gani, Paul UK
'At Morrisons supermarkets we have a real dedication and commitment to vocational training and we've been rewarded well for our efforts by being multiple NTA winners. We were recently given a National Training Award for our apprenticeship scheme which we set up to fill a gap in qualified food craft workers. Over 900 skilled butchers and bakers have gone through the programme, giving us a real competitive advantage by having the best trained staff. By winning these Awards, we know our training is something that our people can be proud of. We've discovered that it's not just Morrisons that benefits from award winning training - our community benefits too'.
Vera Foreman, Morrisons
'We all know the importance of having strong and healthy teeth but the same values are crucial when it comes to the good people that work here. That's why the training we put in place, and the measurement of that through the NTAs, meant we had the confidence to open a brand new practice for 6,000 patients and make sure our staff were fully up to speed in just two weeks. After winning the award we are still outperforming our competitors'.
Ian Stephens, Chipping Manor Dental Practice
