Gold Accreditation from Investors in People

HOME  >  BLOG  >  Gold Accreditation from Investors in People

Investors in People is a globally recognised standard for people management, defining what it takes to lead, support, and manage people effectively to achieve sustainable results. The IIP framework is used by thousands of organisations across the world, providing a roadmap for continuous improvement and highlighting the importance of people-centred practices.

One of the founding principles of Fresh Start in Education is that if we take good care of our staff, they will take good care of our students. It is paramount to us that the students receive the very best care and education while they are with us.

Achieving the Gold Accreditation from Investors in People is a testament to our commitment to fostering a positive, supportive, and high-performing workplace. This award reflects the hard work and dedication our entire team puts into creating an environment where everyone can thrive.

What Does Gold Accreditation Mean?

Gold Accreditation from IIP signifies that we are operating at a high standard in several key areas, as reflected below in some quotes from the report:

Leadership and Management: "Leadership is a particular strength in Fresh Start. Staff trust the leaders, believe they are highly competent, act as true positive role-models, and genuinely care about Fresh Start's people."

Continuous Improvement: "Fresh Start continues to bring ideas and best practice into the company to ensure it maintains its ability to develop and improve. People feel positively that they are encouraged to improve the way they do things."

Empowering and Involving People: "Frequently people spoke about being people centric in the context of always putting the needs of the students first, and that everyone irrespective or their role or status in Fresh Start has an important role to play."

Creating Sustainable Success: "Staff are very clear that Fresh Start has a positive impact on the students it serves and supports, as well as society more generally. They spoke about the great work that is done to support young people and provide them with opportunities to develop to the best of their abilities, and for many providing hope for the future that would otherwise not be there. The team, irrespective of whether they are office-based or work directly with students, are all very proud of the work that is done to support young people."

Benefits for Our Team

For our team, this accreditation means working in an environment where their contributions are valued, and their development is a priority. It underscores our commitment to their well-being, professional growth, and job satisfaction. As a result, our team members can take pride in knowing they are part of an organisation that genuinely cares about their success and well-being.

Impact on Our Students

For our students, the benefits are profound. A well-supported and motivated staff team translates to higher quality care and education. When our staff feel valued and empowered, they can focus on delivering exceptional educational experiences, fostering a positive and nurturing learning environment, and ultimately helping our students achieve their full potential.

Looking Ahead

As we celebrate this achievement, we remain dedicated to our mission of providing outstanding education and support. The Gold Accreditation is not an endpoint but a milestone on our journey. We will continue to strive for excellence, embracing innovation and best practices to ensure we remain at the forefront of education and people management.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed to this success. Your hard work, dedication, and passion are what make Fresh Start in Education a truly exceptional place to work and learn.
