On Thursday 2 November, we celebrated 40 organisations who were recognised after being commended for their commitment to training and skills excellence by Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal at a ceremony at St James’s Palace in London.

The Princess Royal Training Awards recognises organisations in the UK that have created lasting impact by successfully linking their skills development needs to business performance.

Recipients this year include the Macmillan Unit at Christchurch Hospital, which provides hospice care to patients with cancer and other terminal conditions and has achieved a 700% increase in volunteer numbers since implementing a formal development programme, and the North West Ambulance Service NHS Trust, which in less than two years increased gender diversity amongst senior staff by 8% following the launch of a Women into Leadership scheme.
