Training specialist rewarded for staff support

Leading North West training provider PHX Training has received a prestigious level of accreditation for the support it provides for its employees.

PHX Training, which hires 43 employees across its centres in Cumbria and Lancashire, has been awarded an Investors in People Silver accreditation, following a rigorous assessment of the company. A ‘We invest in people, silver accreditation’ places PHX Training in the top 15 per cent of employers assessed.

An Investors in People endorsement rewards companies which perform well in leading, supporting and improving their own staff members, including rewarding high performance, empowering its staff and offering development opportunities.

Carla Pearson, Head of HR at PHX Training, said: “Our identity revolves around supporting people, whether that is customers looking to take on training and get back into work, or our own staff who are always looking to improve.

“As an employer with multiple sites across the region, we are always keen to make sure that our staff don’t feel isolated but are part of the our journey to improve the job opportunities and outcomes for people throughout the North West.”

Paul Devoy, CEO of Investors in People, said: “We’d like to congratulate PHX Training. Silver accreditation on We invest in people is a remarkable effort for any organisation, and places PHX Training in fine company with a host of organisations that understand the value of people.”

PHX Training delivers government backed initiatives including adult skills, employability, apprenticeships and work based learning. We have extensive experience working alongside DWP, ESFA and Job Centre Plus.

The PHX team of qualified trainers also offers a diverse range of resources including offline, online and face-to-face services at six training centres in Barrow, Carlisle, Workington, Morecambe, Preston and Blackpool.
