GGHT Quality Marks

​​​lady and man in evening wear shaking handsGGHT were first recognised as an Investor in People in 2005, again in 2007, and then have been recommended for a Gold Investor in People award in September 2010, a status that less than 1% of organisations achieve, and it s something we re really proud of and committed to retaining.

GGHT enters the Best Companies accreditation process on an annual basis. In 2013, we were ranked in the Top 100 Companies and as 'One to Watch'. Best Companies are committed to helping organisations listen to their employee';s opinions so they can improve employee engagement. Each year Best Companies survey hundreds of thousands of employees from around the world to help organisations identify the areas where they can improve. GGHT is very proud of this status.

We're an ILM and CIH accredited centre and offer these qualifications to our own people and to staff from other organisations.

Accordion Description
  

GGHT adopts an attitude for continuous improvement and fully supports training and development of all staff within the business. Our programme of development aims to provide access to development for our entire workforce which facilitates their on-going personal development.

GGHT employees are supported in the following range of activities:

​​•​A programme of induction upon joining, or taking up a new post within GGHT.​​
  
In 2012, our employment initiatives team was expanded with the recruitment of a new employment initiatives manager to help to support more and more tenants into employment.

Our range of employment initiatives are designed to help people from our estates gain skills and experience that will help them gain employment. Our organisation has recruited several GGHT tenants to the contact centre training academy following an eight week course at the local Collegiate.

GGHT has developed a trainee programme to employ and encourage local residents to study towards an accredited qualification in partnership with Warrington Collegiate.

As an organisation we offer a large number of work placements and we fully support Warrington Collegiate students in attaining valuable, attributable work experience to facilitate them into employment.

In January 2013, GGHT launched our new Positive Change initiative in order to support tenants and their household members into employment, training and volunteering. Within the first 3-months of this initiative being launched, GGHT supported 55 residents and family members into sustainable employment within GGHT and other organisations local to the area.  Positive Change is well on target on getting 450 local people into employment by March 2015!
  

GGHT works in partnership with Warrington Collegiate, the largest learning provider in Warrington, offering a wide variety of courses to a diverse range of learners. We also have strong links with St Helens College, Bolton College, Warrington Wolves and Warrington Borough Council.

GGHT currently hold approved provider status with DWP on the Work programme contract.​​
