Kirsty has pushed our senior personnel to have better business acumen and managerial skills, she secured funding to allow the entire TMO management team to work towards the ILM Level 3 qualification in business Management. This involved a number of day long training sessions delivered by Great Yarmouth College, units covered included understanding leadership, motivation & performance management. This included theory based tutorials and written essay's as final assessment.
'Our aim is to give every one of our managers a base of knowledge and real business skills, most have worked and progressed from grass roots, so all have a real understanding of the business/ industry we work.
