Cambridge Regional College has achieved Investors in People, gold accreditation for the second consecutive time. The college has been accredited since 1995 and first achieved Gold status in 2018. It is now one of only 17% of 50,000 accredited organisations across the UK to achieve Gold status.
Mark Robertson, Principal said “We are delighted to have achieved IIP gold again. CRC is a community of people dedicated to the wellbeing and success of our students, and to the happiness and success of our staff. This award confirms that we are making great progress as an organisation that values and cares about people.”
Cambridge Regional College employs more than 800 members of staff at campuses in Cambridge and Huntingdon, who support the further education and wellbeing of 1000s of full-time and part-time students. In consultation with students and staff, the college developed a set of values that sit at the heart of the college community ethos. These values are remembered and shared with the mnemonic WeAreCRC: Welcoming, Empowering, Aspirational, Resilient, Excellent, Courageous, Respectful, Collaborative.
Director of Human Resources, Laura Kerry said, “We are proud to have maintained our Investors in People, gold accreditation, and to have done so with an increased benchmark score demonstrates our commitment to ensuring our staff members are happy in their employment. We believe that the success of our college begins with its people”.
Paul Devoy, CEO of Investors in People, said, “We’d like to congratulate Cambridge Regional College on achieving the ‘We invest in people’, gold accreditation. The final report commented on how people really enjoy working for the college, where they thrive in a supportive and caring culture. The report found frequent reference to the mission of transforming lives and the vision of being outstanding. The values are well embedded, and everyone felt they were very fitting for their work, and future plans.”
