Having launched the PRM Academy last year we have seen significant uptake and interest in the programme from employees at all levels across our business.

The PRM Academy is a City & Guilds accredited programme that awards participants digital badges once evidence they have the necessary knowledge, skills and behaviours required. The badges cover all areas of our business, from data protection and client sectors to lead generation and client servicing.

Since November 2017 we have awarded a total of 232 badges, with a further 19 awaiting approval and 17 in progress. Our first graduation will take place in November 2018, where participants who have completed their year-long programme will be awarded the overall Golley Slater PRM Academy completion badge.

Client feedback on our academy has been excellent, with several clients looking to invest in their own academy programmes as well as exploit the PRM Academy as much as possible. Our plan over the coming year is to develop ‘PRM Academy Plus’, which will provide our clients access to the Golley Slater workforce already working on their accounts and move them into field sales roles, having already proven themselves capable to engage, develop relationships and close sales with new prospects.
