Martin Delahaye is the first dentist to achieve two Level 7 Certificates from ILM.
A dental nurse from Central Dental Care in Wembley, London, beat off competition from around the world to be awarded the title of ILM Learner of the Year 2011 at a glittering ceremony attended by more than 500 people in London.
The ILM Learner of the Year award celebrates learners who have excelled in their chosen qualification, inspired others, or achieved success for their organisation as a result of taking an ILM programme. Alina had completed her ILM Level 5 Diploma in Management with UMD Professional and was nominated for the award by her principal, Martin Delahaye, and UMD Professional for her commitment to learning and for the way she implemented what she learned on her course for the benefit of the practice.
Martin said ‘We are thrilled to see her success as it recognises not just her own dedication to learning but also the contribution that she has made to the practice.’
‘This is the second consecutive year that a dental practice manager studying with UMD Professional has won this important award’ said Fiona Stuart-Wilson, director of UMD Professional. Her success is well-deserved and she is an inspiration to other managers. The support she has received from her practice has also been outstanding.’
At Central Dental Care, we are committed to continually training our staff to improve our standard of care. To help us to achieve this, we are committed to the Investors in People and BDA Good Practice programmes.
With Dr Martin Delahaye as our Investors in People champion, we have consistently met ever rising standards to hold the award since July 2004. We have recently been awarded Investors in People Bronze award for all 3 practices (Kenton, Harley Street and Wembley).
Dr Leslie Padayachee is our BDA Good Practice Champion.
Over the past two years, our training has helped six dental nurses to qualify and obtaine their NEBDN certificate. We have 2 nurse who have completed their Oral Health Education certificate.
In addition, all of our team attend continuous training to avoid cross-infection within the practice, and in cardiopulmonary resuscitation and life support. The team is also trained to safeguard vulnerable adults and children.
