Society's training and development rewarded

Steps have been taken to create and maintain a learning culture where experience and knowledge is willingly shared, and the acquisition of technical knowledge and professional qualifications is consistently encouraged”.
Anne-Marie Goldsmith, HR Manager at the Society and thanked by the Skills Academy for her preparation, time and assistance during the re-accreditation process, added: “Our re-accreditation provides external verification that our learning and development provision remains fit for purpose, and confirms the Society’s commitment to having well-trained staff and our focus on continuous improvement for the benefit of our members”.
