Devizes-based flash-tech company, Cardwave has congratulated employees, Emma Charlton, its marketing and communications manager and Lucy Bradfield, its customer account executive, for being the first of Cardwave’s team to complete their ILM qualifications funded through Wiltshire College.
Both Emma and Lucy have studied in their own time and have shown “great commitment and enthusiasm to the course.”
Emma – who studied for a level 3 ILM qualification in leadership and management – explained: “The course provided lots of scope for self-reflection and has given me more confidence in how I manage my department, in addition to my contribution to the overall management of Cardwave.”
Lucy studied for a level 2 ILM qualification in leadership and management and said: “I really enjoyed the opportunity to study for the ILM award. The course doesn’t give you an answer to every challenge you will face but equips you with key tools to cope with future demands.”
Both Emma and Lucy attended a celebration and presentation event at Wiltshire College last month to receive their certificates.
The opportunity for Cardwave staff to undertake the ILM qualifications through Wiltshire College has apparently been “really well received.” Its aim is to equip managers and other staff with a “strengthened skill-set” to succeed in a constantly evolving workplace. Seven of its staff have also signed up for the ILM qualifications. According to Cardwave, Wiltshire College accessed funding through the ESF Education and Skills Funding Agency.
A spokesperson for Cardwave remarked: “We were attracted to the course because of its flexibility; staff can do the course online and work at their own pace with little time away from workplace responsibilities.”
