“Virtus was established to improve standards within the industry, however we soon realised we could not do this by just providing a service, we had to find a way to upskill and improve the industry. Developing this qualification has achieved this, and we’re really pleased to have been shortlisted for this award. Its fantastic recognition of the hard work that’s gone into its development over the last 2 ½ years. Being able to collaborate with such highly regarded partners as the IHE and Aston CPD, and having the shared vision of introducing a significant step change within the industry makes us extremely proud of our achievements.
“We are all looking forward to attending the award celebrations, it looks like it’s going to be a great event with some solid competition within our category, and will hopefully be topped off with an award for our team.”
