NPL wins IOP Best Practice in Professional Development award
NPL has been awarded the Institute of Physics Best Practice in Professional Development Award for 2012-2015, in their large organisation category.
This award gives public recognition to companies who demonstrate best practice in the training and professional development opportunities for their staff. Current recipients include AWE, BAE Systems and the Science and Technology Facilities Council.
NPL previously won the award in 2009 (- 2012) so it is a great achievement that we have been able retain it and were the only recipient from that year to do so. It proves that we have not rested on our laurels and have in fact greatly improved our Continuing Professional Development over the last three years.
NPL's submission cited the work that we do through our mentoring, outreach activities, secondment and scientific recognition schemes, as well as through our Personal Development Plan (PDP) process. The award was presented at the IOP's Annual Awards Ceremony on 3 October 2012.
