Last night representatives from The Donkey Sanctuary attended the awards ceremony of The National Training Awards in Bristol.
We were thrilled to be awarded a South West Training Award, in recognition of the excellent in-house training that we have developed through the Bronze and Silver diplomas. This training ensures that a high standard of donkey care and welfare is at the centre of everything we do, and we are so lucky that we are able to draw on the expertise of so many of our staff in delivering this.
The standard was extremely high, and we were in the ‘large employer’ category alongside Ginsters, for the training programme they designed for their technical operators, and The British Army for their trade apprenticeship scheme. So The Donkey Sanctuary took on The British Army, and the result was a draw!
Congratulations to everyone involved - we are so proud, and it’s been great to have our training recognised at such a prestigious level.
