Romford business puts stock in training
A Romford-based financial services organisation is celebrating the success of employees who have achieved leadership and management qualifications through Havering College.
The college in Hornchurch, Essex, is delighted to be working in partnership with Grove & Dean Limited - a family owned business which employs more than 150 people delivering a full range of personal and corporate insurance services, mortgage and financial products to clients throughout the UK.
Nine current members of staff have completed either an ILM Level 3 course in Leadership and Management or achieved an ILM Level 5 qualification in Management.
The certificates were presented by Havering College employer engagement manager Roy Gander at the company’s head office in Market Place, Romford.
Mr Gander said: “Grove & Dean approached the college after recognising they needed to train staff to gain nationally recognised qualifications.
“The company are so pleased with the quality of training delivered by Havering College, that they have now asked for two further groups of staff to receive the same training. We are especially delighted with their additional request to deliver a bespoke customer service course for more than 50 of their employees.”
Grove & Dean education and compliance manager Richard Brewster said: “We wanted to equip our managers and team leaders with a broad range of management skills, to enable them to move the business forwards with confidence. In-house delivery of these courses was an important factor in our decision in choosing Havering College as the provider.
“The Havering College trainer has been able to provide real business solutions to real business problems and this has maintained a high level of involvement by all those taking part. This arrangement is proving very successful and we are keen to continue and develop our relationship with the College.”
