All eight members of staff from Friendship Care and Housing (Friendship) who undertook their CIH qualifications (levels 3 & 4) at Birmingham Metropolitan College recently achieved a distinction grade.
BMC’s housing tutor Leigh Winfield said “This is a great achievement for Friendship, the hard work will no doubt benefit staff individually, their teams and the organisation overall. It’s also a bit of a record at the college. I must say this is the first time that all the students sponsored by one employer got such consistently good overall grades. I daresay it’s down to commitment on their part.”
Jonathan Driffill, Friendship’s Managing Director said “A brilliant achievement, which makes me very proud, well done all of you.”
Ernie Hendricks, Friendship’s new chair also added his congratulations saying “Yet another milestone in the development of the organisation and thanks are in order for the hard work and commitment that has been demonstrated. I am sure the learning will bear fruit in time and will resonate positively throughout the organisation.”
