Award winning ITC
Congratulations to ACOP Training (an ITC based in Wales). Centre staff recently won the ‘Centre of the Year’ award in the wider ‘UK and Ireland’ category for SQA.
Judges were impressed with ACOP on how they demonstrated outstanding commitment to learning for their candidates. This has enabled candidates to gain employment or progression in their current role, of which a number of candidates said they had gained a renewed sense of worth.
ACOP were also successfully involved in supporting construction work to modify the Olympic Park in London, with individuals having to ensure that they had the relevant training, CITB HS&E test and Scheme card.
Congratulations and well done to ACOP Training, keep up the brilliant work you are all doing.
