DWP Workers Celebrate CMI Success

Department for Work and Pensions

In May 2011, Amacus hosted an event to celebrate the success of Department of Work & Pensions (DWP) employees in Newcastle.

12 aspiring managers achieved the Chartered Management Institute Level 5 Diploma – the first to do so as part of the Amacus, TUC UnionLearn and the Public & Commercial Services Union. The successful learners were presented with their awards by Christine Murray and Sarah Bullock of Amacus and Derek Woods from the London Pensions Service.

Amacus Managing Director – Christine Murray said: “We’re delighted the training has been such a success. It’s a triumph for partnership working, commitment and contribution of those taking part. They’ve really embraced the training and enhanced their skills, which will be great for them and their employer in the future”.

Kevin Rowan, UnionLearn Regional Manager, said: “This has been a hugely successful project and underlines the impact work-based learning can have. It helps to boost skills, improve confidence and also improve productivity so is a real win-win for everyone involved”.

The delegates will now move onto the second stage of the programme – a Foundation Degree managed by Amacus and delivered by its project partner Gateshead College.
