Hawksford LPI
HAWKSFORD is the first trust company to receive accreditation from the UK's leading membership body for learning professionals.

The Learning and Performance Institute (LPI) accreditation represents a commitment by businesses to raise the standard of workplace learning and undertake a programme of continuous performance improvement.

‘Gaining accreditation is assurance that the materials we use and the learning environment in which knowledge is shared are well designed, up-to-date, fit for purpose and appropriate to the level of learning,' said Peter Murley, chief executive, Hawksford.

‘I am delighted that Hawksford has been applauded for its commitment to quality, its receptiveness to new ideas and the desire to continuously improve in a commercially sensitive manner.'

The process for accreditation involved preparing a portfolio of evidence assessing how Hawksford performed against 21 key performance indicators (KPIs). KPIs included marketing, client integrity, business links, course descriptions and post event evaluation. Hawksford achieved maximum and above average scores in 13 of the 21 KPIs.

A six-hour assessment followed, in which the business' processes, within the learning and development life cycle, were reviewed by an external consultant for the Learning and Performance Institute.

Hawksford learning & development manager, Marisa Ballantyne, said:

‘I was really proud of the achievement as following a lot of hard work and a rigorous accreditation process to be successfully approved shows that Hawksford adheres to the highest industry standards. This is a testament to our commitment to learning and development as individuals and as a business.'

Learning and Performance Institute accreditation is applicable to any organisation engaged in the learning sector, including learning technologies providers, training departments, training providers and training venues. Each programme is tailored to suit the individual circumstances of the organisation. More … Hawksford is first trust company to gain Learning and Performance Institute accreditation / 2

The Institute's accreditation is recognised as the practical standard in the learning and development industry today and is a requirement for many training tenders in government and global corporations.

Hawksford was recently recognised as a leading trust company in the prestigious 2013 Private Client Practitioner Top 25 Trust Companies List for the fourth year in succession.
