Great news for Linda and the yard when they learnt that they had been awarded two stars in the 2019 Lycetts Team Champion Awards. They were told that, "Your nomination was very good and the yard has been awarded 2 stars, which denotes a yard that has shown very good levels of team ethos and staff engagement". The assessment criteria for Lycetts Team Champion Award are based on The Winning Approach, a best practice standard developed for the NTF by consultants Sport and Beyond. They include effective recruitment and induction systems, a safe and positive working environment, developing staff to fulfil their potential, and rewarding achievement. Linda and the team equalled or bettered several high profile training establishments. Linda is hoping that they can achieve the 3 star level for 2020.
