I am owner and Managing Director of The Tell Organisation, which delivers training and contracts with Skills Development Scotland to deliver Modern Apprenticeships across Scotland and the Employability Fund in seven different local authority areas in Western Scotland.
I have worked with Tell for over 20 years from the starting point of being a Jobclub Leader and have built a substantial amount of knowledge and experience across a range of initiatives having worked closely with DWP, PACE, SDS, etc.
I am also a trustee of Tullochan, which supports young people from the ages of 7-24 through a range of development programmes in Primary and Secondary Schools alongside post-school projects. I’m also a board member of the Scottish Training Federation.
I adopt a pragmatic, direct, empathetic and person-centred approach to all issues – be it providing personal support to a trainee struggling to cope or addressing local employability partners..
