Queen's Award for Enterprise 2018

We are proud to have supported our sister company, Busy Bees, as they receive the ultimate in UK business awards, The Queen's Award for Promoting Opportunity.

The royal accolade, handed out in honour of the Queen’s 93rd birthday, recognises Busy Bees’ social mobility programme and commitment to quality training to their early years apprentices, and really highlights the need for businesses to provide a quality training provision to their workforce.

Busy Bees cares for 50,000 children across nearly 500 settings in the UK, Canada, Singapore, Malaysia and China and its success can be directly related to its dedicated and much valued team of childcare professionals.

To date, we have worked with 3,765 members of Busy Bees’ staff to upskill and develop their knowledge.
