Investors in People is delighted to award SEARCH Education Trust, the highest level accreditation at Gold standard for We Invest in People.

Gold accreditation means that you’ve got the policies in place but more than that, it means everyone – from CEO to apprentice takes ownership for making them come to life.

The award recognises that the Trust values its people creating a fulfilling place to learn, work and make a positive difference in the community.
