Caring Homes are celebrating after being commended for the third time by HRH The Princess Royal for their inspirational commitment to learning and development.
The leading care group’s Chef Development Programme was among 43 learning programmes commended by the 2020 Princess Royal Training Awards to mark the Princess’ 70th birthday.
Liz Willis, Director of Learning and Organisational Development, said: “I am delighted that our dedication to training and development has been recognised in this way. At Caring Homes we wholeheartedly believe that investing in our colleagues, their learning and ongoing development is pivotal to the success of our organisation, the exceptional standards of care, safety and wellbeing we provide our residents and indeed the way in which we have risen to the challenges that the COVID-19 pandemic has presented.
“Our Chef Development Programme was formed using the very latest research and techniques which can be utilised by those throughout our homes preparing the very best, and most suitable, foods for the people we care for.”
Kirstie Donnelly MBE, Chief Executive of the City & Guilds Group, commented: “Congratulations to all of the organisations who have achieved the Princess Royal Training Awards 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.”
