PDS wins award for Best Training Provider

PDS wins Best Training Provider award at School Leaver Awards

31st May 2017, Wiltshire (UK) – PDS Group, the leading IT and Business Apprenticeship company, is delighted to announce that it has won the Best Training Provider award at last Thursday's School Leaver Awards ceremony in London.

The School Leaver Awards recognises leading employers and training providers for their high standard of service and capabilities. The awards consider everything about an organisation, from skills development, career progression and training to company culture.

The award winners are chosen based on the results of surveys completed by apprentices and school leavers at participating firms. Each participating firm asks their apprentices and school leavers to rate their experiences across a range of categories. These range from work-life balance and salary to company culture and team dynamic. They are based on the values young people and their influencers consider when choosing an employer.

"We are thrilled to receive the 2017 Best Training Provider award," said Jenny Harman, Director of Education and Training at PDS. "As a Programme Manager and Assessor, it is always very rewarding to obtain direct feedback from apprentices, that we have made a positive impact on their careers, added Joanne Hopkinson, Programme Manager at PDS. "To even be nominated for such an award is fantastic and credit to everyone involved with the success of the programme."

PDS works with large blue chip corporate clients in the provision of apprenticeship and talent programmes. We take the hassle of building an apprenticeship programme away and leave organisations free to define and measure the outcomes required to transform their organisational effectiveness.
