St Cecilia’s College in Derry are celebrating receiving their Investors in People Award (IIP) for the performance of their staff. The Education Minister Peter Weir recently visited the College where he presented the school with the Gold Standard Award by IIP.
This prestigous recognition is reserved for the top seven percent of businesses in the UK and comprises of a comprehensive audit of the school over ten catergories including business startegy, leadership and management, continuous improvement and performance management. The assessors felt that the school's motto of 'Aspire, endeavour, achieve' encapulates its positive culture and philosophy.
St Cecilia's is now working towards an 'Investors in Pupils' Award from the same body.
