Silver Award

Training Journal Awards 2014

The Centre for Change Management has supported our partner Training Organisation Aspire Europe Ltd in a recent engagement with Chester West and Cheshire Council. This project to create a cohort of Change Advocates in the Council has been given a silver award at the Training Journal Awards.

The Change Advocate concept in the Cheshire West and Chester Council fills the gap between the process of doing change and the people on the front line of service delivery who need to change. Following the client brief Aspire Europe consultants (Robert Cole and David King) designed three strands to develop a cohort of Change Advocates:

  • A number of networking events to build a community and share experiences
  • Workshop based training in soft skills and communication leading to an assessment and the C4CM Level 4 Award in People and Change
  • Action Learning to develop problem solving skills and deeper support groups

We are very pleased that over 40 of the Change Advocates chose to complete their assessment and achieved the People and Change Award with C4CM.
