17th August 2022Tweet
Gelder Group’s commitment to training and development has been recognised for a second time in HRH The Princess Royal Training Awards’ 2022.
The group, now in its 35th year, won the award after training more than 300 apprentices while welcoming over 100 children for supervised activities at its Sturton by Stow head office environmental park every week through ‘Wild in the woods.’
CEO Steve Gelder, said, “Gelder Group has always enjoyed a great reputation when it comes to apprenticeships. Our mission is to ‘Inspire a New Generation in Construction’. This award re-confirms not only our commitment to people starting out in their time with us but to continued training and development of our people throughout their career and as such we are absolutely delighted to be recognised.”
Kirstie Donnelly MBE, Chief Executive of City & Guilds, said: “The Princess Royal Training Awards demonstrate how training and development can open up opportunities and attract new talent to industries with significant skills gaps and labour shortages.
“Yet again, this year’s recipients have shown the range and depth of learning and development that is taking place in their own organisations to shape growth and positivity, from the power of skills development to address issues such as improving diversity and inclusion, through to programmes to address the ongoing impact of climate change.
“As we all work towards a net zero future, we hope to see even more training programmes recognised for their work in supporting this vitally important issue, amongst many other areas that create organisational and people development.”Tweet
