Our CEO, Margaret Fitzsimons, receives the Award from Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal

On Tuesday 6 December 2022, Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal, welcomed the EDA as one of 46 organisations to Banqueting House in London to celebrate successfully achieving a Princess Royal Training Award for their commitment to training and development.

The Princess Royal Training Awards recognise employers across the United Kingdom who deliver outstanding training and development programmes that have had a direct impact on their people and organisations. This year, applications were made from a wide range of organisations from large multi-nationals through to small not-for-profits.

The EDA won the Award for our suite of 12 Product Knowledge Modules. 

Kirstie Donnelly MBE, Chief Executive of City & Guilds said“This year we have seen applications from a range of organisations who have prioritised the development of their teams, as they continue to operate in a challenging context. I am delighted that we are able to recognise 46 fantastic employers who place value on training their employees. From inclusion and diversity, through to programmes addressing the ongoing impact of climate change and tackling skills shortages in certain sectors – organisations are using training to address these issues. It’s an honour to come together and celebrate these organisations’ shared and unrelenting commitment to learning and development.”
