Celebration of Achievement Awards

The Celebration of Achievement Awards is an annual event which recognises the learning and development that has taken place within the Trust and honours those individuals and teams who have excelled in this area within the last year.

The awards ceremony has taken place at the Crowne Plaza Hotel for the last 3 years, as a formal celebration of the commitment of Trust staff to education and is a real highlight of the organisational calendar.

The awards include the announcement and presentation of learning and achievement certificates to staff in nominated categories. The evening also has a lively and entertaining charity auction, where prizes donated by local businesses raise money for Countess of Chester Hospital NHS Foundation Trust charities. The 2006 awards raised just over £2000 for the B POSITIVE appeal.

Adult Learners Week

Adult Learners Week takes place once every year and offers everyone the chance to find out more about education and training opportunities open to them. Here at the Countess of Chester we support Adult Learners Week in promoting access to learning for all.

The Education and Training Centre is the venue for Adult Learners Week activities and information, with displays in the foyer throughout the week and on Adult Learners Day. Adult Learners Day 2007 took place on 23rd May 2007, and included a number of taster sessions where everyone had an opportunity to demonstrate different skills to reveal if it was something that they wanted to pursue as further learning or training. The day also included a chance to browse various adult learning information stands, giving details of training courses available.
