Investors in People

Nacro’s operational services have been IIP accredited since 2000 and received IIP Silver accreditation in 2017. The award is a testament to Nacro’s:

  • clear strategy and commitment to continue investing in training and employee engagement activities
  • hard working managers across the organisation who ensure effective communication, engagement, performance management and development for teams and individuals
  • culture of working together towards our vision and mission, living the organisational values and uniting with a shared purpose of improving the lives of our learners and service users
  • ability to respond to change, especially following the merger between Nacro and Totton College which saw the college becoming an important part of Nacro, with colleagues working together with the same high standards and approach across the board
