Sharing In Growth programme wins royal training accolade

by Aug 24, 20202020 awards, In the press

Sharing in Growth has been commended by HRH The Princess Royal, President of the City and Guilds Group, by picking up a 2020 Princess Royal Training award.

Now in its fifth year, the Princess Royal Training Awards recognise organisations across the UK with outstanding training and development programmes that have had a direct impact on business performance, demonstrating exceptional commitment, despite the unprecedented challenges of Covid-19.

To win the award, Sharing in Growth needed to demonstrate three ‘hallmarks of excellence’:

  1. Ensuring development of people is integral to the organisation
  2. Demonstrating that the programme is designed and delivered efficiently and effectively
  3. Show clear evidence that the programme has had an impact on the success of organisations and its people

Kirstie Donnelly MBE, chief executive of the City & Guilds Group said: “Congratulations to the organisations who have achieved the Princess Royal Training Award standard of excellence this year. We know that having a highly skilled workforce will be essential as we start to rebuild our economy post Covid-19, and in increasingly uncertain times making sure we invest in people has never been more important, nor has continuing to showcase the impact it has on organisational success.”

The award builds on Sharing in Growth’s award by SEMTA/Enginuity for the innovation of the Sharing in Growth programme, which has now touched over 10 thousand people across 70 aerospace companies, securing nearly £5 billion of contracts attributable to the impact it has had on their competitive capability by focussing on their people.

Founded in 2012, the programme is largely funded by The government’s Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, whose independent evaluation recently stated that, compared to three control groups, SiG has had a significant impact on the beneficiaries’ turnover and employment.

Andy Page, chief executive of Sharing in Growth UK Ltd said: “This a great honour for the SiG team to be recognised by HRH The Princess Royal for excellence and impact. High value manufacturing is hugely rewarding to people employed within it and brings strength to the local and national economy. I look forward to our team being part of the post Covid recovery by focussing on the development of these people and the organisations within which they work.”

With origins in the aerospace and civil nuclear sectors, Sharing in Growth has now expanded to start work in the offshore wind sector.
