Huge congratulations go out to a second group of employees who’ve successfully complete Sodexo’s British Institute of Facilities Management (BIFM) accredited training programme.
At the Sodexo IFM Academy graduation ceremony on 11 September, 11 employees from healthcare, education and corporate services celebrated the end of their two-year programme to achieve a BIFM level 4 qualification. The accreditation gives them an insight into the FM marketplace and the skills and knowledge to manage and operate IFM contracts.
Why is the programme important?
With more than half of Sodexo’s UK and Ireland relations being made up of IFM business, this programme is important to the continuous development of employees in the FM industry. The BIFM programme has been adapted recently and the new cohorts are now launching as a Global academy which is being delivered across Sodexo.
What they said…
Emma Reason, programme manager, Sodexo UK & Ireland, said: “‘I am so pleased we have another group that have now graduated, illustrating that the qualification is both achievable and a valuable part of delegates’ development whilst also supporting our business journey. I look forward to even more people completing and starting our new Global IFM academy.”
Julian Burton, Assessor from BIFM, added: “We take pride in the partnership we have with Sodexo because it is represented by an employer who truly values the skills that the BIFM-accredited qualifications and FM professional standards can introduce to its employees.”
Congratulations to the 11 graduates: Kristian Trend, Alison Harper, Deborah Thomas, John Kidney, Joyce Simpson, Jan Janssen, Kathleen Murray, Kathryn Morgan, Nick Galloway, Gerry Furlong and Samantha Kinloch.
The next group of employees enrolled in the Sodexo IFM Academy are expected to graduate early next year.
