Social care staff at Cheshire East Council who support vulnerable adults are celebrating after picking up several awards.
Care4CE hosted its Recognition of Achievement Awards presentation at the Municipal Buildings in Crewe where more than 60 people received their certificates from Councillor Roland Domleo, Cabinet member with responsibility for adult social care services.
Staff members were successful in achieving NVQs in health and social care and in leadership and management.
Other qualifications attained included diplomas for business-improvement techniques and environmental best practice, an honours degree in social work studies and City and Guilds qualifications for training skills.
Marion Goddard, Care4CE service manager, was given a special recognition of achievement award for her outstanding contribution to the service on what was her retirement day. A further 50 staff have also gained awards but could not be present at the ceremony.
Sandra Shorter, the Head of Care4CE, gave a welcome speech and Lorraine Butcher, Strategic director for children, families and adults, spoke to acknowledge the achievements of staff.
Councillor Olivia Hunter, Cabinet support member with responsibility for adult services, said: “May I take this opportunity to congratulate our Care4CE staff who have worked very hard to achieve their respective awards.
“The Council attaches great importance to having well-trained and qualified staff to ensure that it can continue to support vulnerable adults in the community and improve life opportunities and health for everybody in Cheshire East.”
