GREENE King Pub Partners has scored a triple success in the BII National Industry Training Awards, which recognise excellence in training for pub licensees.

The leased and tenanted division of Bury St Edmunds-based Greene King scooped the awards for the Best Development Programme (Non Managed) for its Go for Growth programme and the Best Licensee Trainer, in the form of one of its unique “tenant trainers”, Margaret Orman.

The company then completed its hat-trick, with the Go for Growth programme also receiving the overall Supreme Award.

David Elliott, managing director of Greene King Pub Partners, said: “Winning the three NITA Awards, including the Supreme Award, really does endorse the high quality training and development we offer new and existing licensees.
