Managers at North-East Lincolnshire Council have gained nationally accredited management qualifications from the University of Lincoln.

 

More than 50 council staff received their certificates at a ceremony held at Grimsby Town Hall on Wednesday (5th January) after completing training programmes offered by the university’s Hull Centre for Management Development and the Institute of Leadership and Management.

 

The Mayor of North-East Lincolnshire, Councillor Mrs Margaret Solomon, and its chief executive, George Krawiec, presented the certificates.

 

The ceremony was also attended by Helen Isaacs, the council’s Deputy Director of Human Resources, and by representatives from the University of Lincoln and the HRC Management Consultancy.

 

Some of the managers achieved a Postgraduate Certificate in Management or a Postgraduate Diploma in Management recognised by the Chartered Management Institute.  These postgraduate programmes were delivered by the Hull Centre for Management Development.

 

Others gained Level 2 Certificates in Team Leading or Level 3 Introductory and Full Certificates in First Line Management run by the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) and delivered by HRC Management Consultancy.

 

"The council is committed to developing all of its employees and our bespoke management qualifications play an important part in improving the effectiveness of our managers and the quality of services we deliver to our communities in North-East Lincolnshire," said Helen Isaacs.

 

Leader of the council, Councillor Andrew De Freitas, added: "I would like to congratulate all the managers who have completed these courses and received accredited qualifications.”
