Delamere Achieves Gold – Investors In People Award

We have some amazing news to share!

We are proud to announce we have been awarded the prestigious Gold Award at our recent Investors in People Accreditation

Here is what Investors in People had to say:

Despite the covid pandemic which has presented significant challenges for your organisation and staff, you have clearly not simply coped, but you have grown and thrived.

The sentiments expressed by the people I interviewed was overwhelmingly positive and people struggled to think of any areas that could be improved.

Against the national backdrop in which significant numbers of education staff are leaving this profession, you should be enormously proud that your team expressed very high levels of agreement in this IIP survey and their testimony is equally positive.
