This category will be judged upon each applicant’s (2000 word max) entry statement. This award is for those who can demonstrate a positive and progressive approach to training and developing staff.

Entrants will be assessed on the outcomes of their training initiatives, as well as the innovation shown in developing new training methods and the time allocated to training.

Judges will also be looking for strong leadership and commitment to training, as well as evidence of an embedded culture of training. This award highlights overall continued performance in training, rather than one specific project or initiative, although examples of these should be included to support your entry.

Please note that your document should be no more than 2000 words in total, which includes your 250 word summary. You may additionally include attachments (visuals, photos, charts, etc) that you think would help your application.

We strongly recommend that you write out your application on a word document before inputting into the form. If anything goes wrong you don't want to lose all your info and start again!
