This story is over

HRH The Princess Royal has commended 48 organisations, ranging from retail giants to charities, for their inspirational commitment to learning and development – including one Lincoln firm.

City & Guilds Group has commended Lincoln-based Gelder Group at the 2018 Princess Royal Training Awards.

The prestigious awards honour UK companies for their outstanding training and development programmes, which have directly resulted in commercial success.

From apprenticeship schemes to gamified e-learning to health and wellbeing programmes, each of the recipients has displayed a unique dedication to developing their workforce.

The full list of recipients includes public and private sector businesses of all sizes, from areas including hospitality, banking and financial services, retail, education, manufacturing, not for profit, and healthcare.

The award recipients, who were all subject to a rigorous assessment process, will receive their awards from HRH The Princess Royal at a ceremony in October.

The Princess Royal Training Awards, delivered by the City & Guilds Group, are now in their third year. Each of the 90 applications were assessed against three Hallmarks of Excellence by the Princess Royal Training Awards Commission, which comprised of HRH The Princess Royal and seven leading figures in the business and training community.

Chris Jones, Chief Executive of the City & Guilds Group said: “Through the Awards we highlight excellent examples of training that have already proved to be effective and we encourage others to build on their success.”
