As a Government Further Education Ambassador and National Chair of the Apprenticeship Diversity Champions Network, my role is to encourage people to have the confidence and ambition to get the best training and education key can.
I have spent more than two decades teaching in Further and Higher Education and I know how transformational getting the skills you need for a good career is. I worked with the Government on the FE White Paper 'Jobs for Skills', which has been widely welcomed by the sector. The Paper reforms learning provision for over 16s, lifelong employability strategies and FE workforce development, among other areas of further education. I will be helping companies to access training and education in order to up-skill their own work forces, in addition to encouraging T Levels, apprenticeships and vocational programmes. T Levels are the new technical courses (equivalent to three A levels) which have been created in collaboration with employers and businesses to meet the needs of industry.
