Positive Youth Foundation in Coventry hits the gold standard
A Coventry-based social enterprise, which helps young people across the Midlands to improve their lives, has been given a golden seal of approval by a national body.
The Positive Youth Foundation has been awarded the Gold Standard for Investors In People (IIP) as a measure of the way it manages and supports staff.
It is rare for any organisation to pick up the Gold award after its first assessment – but IIP practitioners were so impressed with what they saw, they said they had “no hesitation” in awarding the standard.
Investors in People assessor Richard Tomes said: “It was a pleasure to spend some time with the team at the Positive Youth Foundation and to hear from people how the organisation has grown and evolved over time.
“Everyone is very enthusiastic about the work they do and want to share all the positive stories with others.
“The story they have to tell is impressive and not only is the work they do with young people remarkable, but a highly-effective organisation has evolved to support this and ensure it continues.
“There is no hesitation in reaching the conclusion that the Standard is met and that accreditation as an Investor in People should be awarded. This is an exceptional achievement of which all involved should be very proud.”
