At the Training Journal Awards in London, Phoenix’s Head of Learning and Development Frances Gray received the bronze award at the ceremony hosted by the presenter and actress Denise Van Outen. The national charity was shortlisted for the category, alongside Home Group and St Mungo’s Broadway, for its induction pack which is given to all new members of staff starting at Phoenix.

Frances Gray said: “We are so proud to pick up this award for our learning and development programme which is part of our overall induction for new staff. We believe giving people the best start at Phoenix will ensure they continue to develop their learning and provide them with the right tools to deliver the best service we can. We have a dedicated learning and development team who work hard to ensure staff have access to the right training and can broaden their own personal development ambitions.”
