June saw us celebrating our collaboration with leading challenger bank Aldermore, with nominations at the CIPR Excellence Awards – where we were up for Best CSR Programme – and at the Corporate Engagement Awards where last year’s hugely successful Aldermore SKILL! Programme was in the running for Best Alignment of Brand Values and CSR.
Sadly we didn’t win at the CIPRs (but it’s the taking part that counts, right?) We were up against stiff competition from the likes of Vision Express and Proctor & Gamble, so to be nominated in such esteemed company was serious recognition in itself. But we were still hoping for that elusive win…
And it arrived at the Corporate Engagement Awards on 21st June, where we won GOLD in our category! Patrick from Visionpath was joined by some of the team from Aldermore – including mentors from our 2015 programme – to celebrate our collaboration and bask in the glory of winning a highly-coveted award. We’re thrilled to be recognised and, as with all these things, it underlines a true team effort across Visionpath, Aldermore and the schools and students who gave so much to our 2015 programme.
To refresh your memory, here are the highlights of the grand final in Aldermore SKILL! 2015.
