Snow-Camp awarded Princess Royal Training Award
Snow-Camp, the UK’s only registered charity turning young lives around through snowsports, has been awarded a Princess Royal Training Awards. The Snow-Camp team attended the awards ceremony at St James’s Palace in London on 30 October 2019. They were presented with the award by HRH Princess Anne, who is the president of the global skills development body. The charity is one of forty-eight workplace learning programmes that was recognised by the Princess Royal Training Awards Commission (PRTAs) for an award this year.
PRTAS was set up by the City & Guilds, a global skills development body, who has been recognising employers, with outstanding training and development programmes for the past four years. President of the body, HRH Princess Anne announced the winners on her birthday (15th August 2019). All the recipients, which includes businesses from both public and private sector, were subject to a rigorous assessment process.
This year saw clear trends in the types of training programmes demonstrating exceptional quality and impact. Apprenticeship programmes have become a mainstay and focus of learning and development for many organisations, just like Snow-Camp’s own Programme Journey from First Tracks to Youth Forum.
Anna Kent, Snow-Camp’s Communications Manager said:
“We’re thrilled to have been awarded a Princess Royal Training Award. It’s an absolute honour to have been recognised for our training and development programmes, especially alongside such respected organisations including The Royal Navy and RBS.”
