Success Stories sought for National Training Awards 2010

The 2010 National Training Awards is seeking stories of how training has transformed businesses, organisations and communities.

Run on behalf of the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) by UK Skills, the National Training Awards celebrate organisations and individuals that can demonstrate outstanding business and personal success through an investment in training.

The National Training Awards' six categories are open to individuals, businesses and training providers of all sizes across all industries throughout the UK.  The National Training Awards has also announced that for the second consecutive year businesses that have invested in training as a direct result of the recession will have the opportunity to showcase their work in the 'Now is the Time' Award.  This will form the seventh category for this year's Awards. 

Simon Bartley, CEO, UK Skills said:  "From speaking with past winners of the National Training Awards we have established that more than half have enjoyed increased awareness amongst their customer base, with a further third stating they have gained additional business following winning an award. 

"Entering the Awards provides a real opportunity to benchmark your training against the rest of the UK, so step up now and be recognised for your hard work."    

The closing date for this year's Awards is Friday 23rd April 2010.
