ICM cleans up at training awards

ICM was selected as the ‘Best company for training and qualifications’ at the FDQ Annual Awards. Moira Hughes, an employee of ICM, was also presented with ‘The vleaning NVQ of the year award’ at the same ceremony. FDQ is an awarding body for vocational qualifications and is committed to increasing the profile of qualifications for the cleaning industry. As an awarding organisation, FDQ recognises best practice and excellence in training and development.

ICM has been awarded the qualifications for this year in recognition of the commitment demonstrated to training and development. Over 1000 ICM staff are enrolled on the NVQ scheme, with over 500 successfully certified to NVQ Level 2 in cleaning. Perhaps the most inspirational of these is Moira Hughes, one of the ICM Santander team in Warrington. Hughes has been working with ICM for nearly three years and has been a cleaner most of her working life. Despite being in her 70s, she is ever keen to learn and was one of the first to register for the NVQ scheme and has recently collected her NVQ Level 2 certificate.

“We are delighted to be recognised by FDQ,” said Paul Rafferty, MD of ICM. “Ian Sinclair, who leads our training and development activity, has been working hard to ensure that our people are as committed to the NVQ process as we are: critical to the success of any NVQ programme. Most importantly of all is the recognition of an outstanding individual, Moira Hughes. Her dedication and focus are truly an inspiration to those who work alongside her, and her commitment to the NVQ process goes to show that this is a qualification for all.”
