I have worked in the training provider sector in various guises for over 20 years. Prior to starting with Skillsfirst Assess, I was Head of Key Accounts for one of the largest private sector providers of Apprenticeships operating nationally, establishing their Apprenticeship needs and ensuring their large Levy funds were appropriately allocated to support incumbent upskilling of staff and new apprenticeships into the business.
As Head of Key Accounts (Apprenticeships) I also worked with large Levy payers building relationships and supporting them with their Levy spend and apprenticeship development.
On a personal level I have 5 grandchildren who take up a lot of my free time. My hobbies are long-haul travel, going to the theatre or music events with my lovely network of friends as much as possible. My friends and family however would say I am a workaholic!!
