The 'Forbes Diploma for Legal Secretaries, Accredited by ILEX Paralegal Programmes' has been recognised across Lancashire by the Be Inspired In Business Awards (BIBAs) 2008.
The BIBAs which is open to all businesses and sectors across Lancashire received over 700 award applications and Babs Murphy, CEO of North & Western Lancashire Chamber of Commerce stated that "the calibre of entries this year was exceptionally high".
After an initial application and attendance at interview, we were very proud to be informed that Forbes was one of only four finalists in the category of 'Performance Through People'.
To celebrate the success, Forbes attended the "Business Oscars" ceremony at Blackpool Tower Ballroom in March and received a certificate of achievement from Westinghouse, Springfield Fuels Ltd who are the sponsors of the category.
Currently nearing the end of its second year and eagerly looking forward to a third, the content is designed to further develop the skills of Legal Secretaries in the areas of Legal Processing, Administration and Communication. In addition to this achievement, Forbes has received excellent feedback from ILEX (Institute of Legal Executives) secretaries who have taken the course and their Departmental Managers.
