Tony O’Brien in Programme Development and Quality Assurance at ICSE said: “We at ICSE are delighted to have won this award with IFI considering the level of competition at the National Training Awards. In my view all of the credit for this programme has to go the Fisheries Officers nationally who made it a success. It was a programme built by Fisheries Officers for their colleagues and the judges commented on the real desire by the teams to make their job better. The programme was successful because of the support, buy in and feedback from Fisheries Officers nationwide. Their hospitality and willingness to show us the challenges they face and their desire to overcome them set the tone for the whole programme.”
