Staff training awards at PCP ...

Leading Shropshire printing specialists Precision Colour Printing, of Telford, held an awards ceremony for staff who have gained NVQ certificates at various levels.

Thirty staff members from all departments, including two apprentices, of the Halesfield-based company completed a year-long course run by GB Training of Birmingham and were presented with their certificates at a special reception held at The Park House Hotel in Shifnal.

PCP managing director Alex Evans, said: “This was the firm’s first National Vocational Qualification training programme and it has proved to be a great success, so we intend to continue with further training from here on.

“The aim of the initiative was to invest in aspiring members of staff who wished to better themselves and gain formal nationally recognised qualifications for their current jobs or potential future roles and we are very proud of the energy, effort and hard work, all in their personal time.

“In turn the company itself is rewarded with a greater multi-skilled and talented workforce which will help it advance and prosper.”

The NVQ courses were run by Andy Shellis of GB Training, who added: “ All of the delegates worked extremely hard during the year in striving to attain the necessary high standards of discussion, statements, quality workbooks and recognise their individual roles and responsibilities within PCP, so it is a great pleasure to present them with their certificates.”
