Get your training recognised

Celebrating best practice

Get your organisation recognised by People 1st by becoming accredited or gaining a Quality Mark for your training programme. Both aim to raise the professionalism of the hospitality industry. Accreditation recognises and celebrates the excellence of training providers in England, while quality marking aims to recognise and showcase outstanding training programmes or qualifications.
