The Worshipful Company of Environmental Cleaners (WCEC) has announced that Novus, the business sector of Manchester College, is the winner of the 2016 Eric Hill Memorial Award.
This annual award – presented in association with the City and Guilds Institute – goes to the college, training provider or company that has produced the greatest number of successful candidates in Cleaning Science and Cleaning Services Supervision qualifications during past year.
Novus has become the market leader in offender training, education and employability. It works in more than 100 locations across the UK; in prisons, approved premises and in the community.
Philip Morrish, Master of the WCEC presented the Award, certificate and purse at the livery company’s recent court luncheon in Saddlers’ Hall in London to Christopher Horton, director of operations, representing Novus.
“This annual award, named in honour of our company’s founder, presents us with a great opportunity to recognise and reward those who are doing outstanding work raising professional standards within the cleaning industry. Novus are worthy winners and make a significant contribution not just to the cleaning industry, but also to the individuals who gain a qualification.”
