Active Training Awards 2015 finalists revealed

Finalists have been announced for the 2015 Active Training Awards, which will be presented on Thursday 26 November at the Crowne Plaza in Marlow.

Building on the inaugural Active Training Awards in 2014 and the Active Training Conference in March 2015, the Active IQ-sponsored accolades focus on driving the workforce development agenda.

Organisers ukactive and CIMSPA are placing an added emphasis on technology this year to reflect the industry shift towards facilitating modern learning methods, and this has featured a rigorous application process.

To reach this stage, each entrant has undergone two stages of assessment, including an initial submission, a presentation to a panel of expert judges, or an online feedback survey of their learners and employers.

Many of the shortlisted candidates will go through one final stage of assessment before the awards night. Following the assessment process, all entrants will receive an individualised feedback report with detailed feedback from each stage of assessment, including strengths and areas for development.

“The high number and calibre of entrants in this year’s Active Training Awards is testament to the sector’s commitment to its workforce and personal and professional development,” said Tara Dillon, CEO of CIMSPA.

“I have been so impressed by the fantastic entries this year; it’s going to be interesting to see who comes out on top in each category.”
