Investors in People

Accreditation by Investors in People demonstrates an organisation’s commitment to high performance through good people management.

Organisations are assessed against the Investors in People Standard, which reflects the latest workplace trends, essential skills and effective structures required to outperform in any industry.

Against this strict criteria, The British School of Etiquette has been recognised as a great employer that nurtures and retains talented people as well as investing in staff training and development. Our employees thrive because they are given the tools and encouragement to grow and develop with the business.

Training programmes that are accredited by The CPD Service have been thoroughly scrutinised to ensure they meet the very highest standards of integrity and quality.

Continued Professional Development is the term used to describe the learning activities professionals engage in to develop and enhance their abilities. It enables learning to become conscious and proactive, rather than passive and reactive.

Established in 1996, The CPD Certification Service assesses training programmes against a universally accepted checklist developed over the past two decades.
