Weston College Business Awards 2013 - DHL winners
Employees from across the region met at DHL Tradeteam's facility in Ebbw Vale, South Wales, where Assessors Paul Varcoe and Lynsey Lawrence presented certificates to a total of 17 successful candidates.
They had achieved Apprenticeship qualifications in Customer Service, Business Administration, Team Leading and Management.
DHL Tradeteam and Weston College have developed a strong working partnership which has resulted in more than 40 members of their staff working towards their Apprenticeships/NVQ's at various levels over the last three years.
They are the first business to train their staff with the College in the new Level 5 Higher Apprenticeship for their senior managers.
DHL were the winners of the Large Business Employer of the Year 2013 at the College's Business Excellence Awards in June.
Lynsey Lawrence said: "All the DHL managers have been fully supportive of the training programme, by allowing a large proportion of their staff to develop their skills and knowledge.
"Even in this challenging economic environment, they took the decision to invest in up-skilling their staff with an insight that by doing this their staff would contribute to the growth of the company."
Rob Dunning, DHL Tradeteam site manager, said: "Weston College was really supportive to all our employees who took their NVQ qualifications. The courses were a key element of the training and development programme for the employees."
