Sandra Stark, Care and Quality Director for Avery, was delighted with the win. “We have the best training and development team in the sector, lead superbly by Shelley Parker-Wain, who has designed and implemented class-leading programmes for all levels of care and non-care staff, and has innovated with such strategies as the Advance Senior Carer program; that has been accredited by none other than City & Guilds and leads the sector in helping to support the pressure on nurses and adjust the skills mix. Excitingly, there’s more to come from this amazing team”.

Well done to all the other winners and finalists at the awards and congratulations to our Training and Development team on another fantastic win.
