We are honoured to be recognised among the Top 5 ‘Best Large Companies to Work For in the UK’ as well as securing the number 2 spot in the ‘Best Education and Training Companies in the UK’.
Each year Best Companies compile a list of organisations that are dedicated to doing the right thing, prioritise their people and recognise the significance of a highly engaged workforce. Businesses placed on the list are committed to their employees, acknowledging that they are a crucial part to their success. Celebrating at the prestigious event in Battersea Evolution in London, companies from all over the UK came together to celebrate.
This year marked our first entry into the ‘Large Companies’ category. The transition from ‘Mid-sized Companies’ to the ‘Large Companies’ category highlights our exceptional growth and dedication to making Educ8 Training Group an outstanding place to work. 2023 is the ninth consecutive year that Educ8 has been commended on the Best Companies list and the third year in a row being placed in the top 5.

Recognising outstanding performance through awarding our staff with Gr8 days, length of service and Appreci8 days. In addition to offering an extensive wellbeing support programme.
