Computer.jpgChabad's Vista Training, a provider of vocational training for adults and older adolescents in North London, has attained the prestigious Investors in People award.

The organisation, run by Mrs Hindy Lew and housed in the brand new Lubavitch Children's Centre building, was established in 1993 to provide residents of Hackney and Haringey with vocational qualifications, preparing students to adapt to their workplace with ease.

Vista Training enables hard-to-reach people in North London to achieve qualifications and acquire skills in a culturally sensitive environment with classes tailored to the many different types of students in the Borough, including school leavers, mothers returning to work, and even 'young' grandparents.

The review, undertaken by Investors in People at the end of last month, highly commends Vista Training for its “superb team spirit”, “strong planning process” and “excellent examples of management effectiveness.”

“Reviews such as Vista Training are few and far between for Investors in People assessors,” states the report. “This is said in the context of the very strong investors in people.jpgcommitment to the valued work that is undertaken by everyone at the Centre. The dedication to supporting the community came across so strongly as to be almost tangible.”

The report also praises Mrs. Lew’s leadership skills and the working environment at Vista Training: “Without exception, everyone sang the praises of the organisation and in particular the way they are all managed by Mrs Lew...  The lasting memory for the assessor, will be the genuine and modest way in which the staff approached their role with the utmost professionalism and dedication. Knowing that they are passing on skills and knowledge to members of the Jewish community who, would otherwise have no access to specialist development, is something they are all so proud of.”
