Companies and individuals gathered on 13th October 2009 at BAFTA, Piccadilly to find out the winner of this year's Broadcast Awards - the only sector-specific accolade within the acclaimed National Training Awards.
The ceremony celebrated the achievements of those organisations which have made an outstanding contribution and commitment to training in the workplace. Now in its third year, the Broadcast Industry Training Award is fast becoming a coveted award for the HR and Learning & Development community across all sectors of the broadcast industry.
Eight nominations were reduced to five finalists. Toojays and ISD beat off competition from ITV, BBC, QVC and Sky to win their award in recognition of the Foundation Management Training Programme delivered by Toojays to ISD. The year long modular programme delivered a series of structured, interactive management development workshops to over 100 middle and senior managers at the organisation.
The ceremony was hosted by radio and TV favourite, Maggie Philbin, with the awards themselves being presented by Baroness Helena Kennedy, one of Britain's leading lawyers.
The awards are organised by the partnership of Skillset, Ofcom and the BTSR in conjunction with UK Skills and the National Training Awards. They have been judged by a panel of independent experts, most of whom have significant experience of the broadcast industry.
