Manager, Birchwood Access and Training Centre
The Centre is a registered charity which offers support and training opportunities to the local community. I previously worked for the LSC within widening adult participation for five years. I also manage the Learning Communities Project; this is a network of like minded organisations around the county and one of a very active group hoping to establish a Third Sector Learning and Skills Consortia for Lincolnshire and Rutland.
As a Third Sector employer and training delivery partner the hope is to support the Employment and Skills board to influence other departmental agenda’s such as employment and the up skilling of workforce, employability skills for those seeking work, which will impact on Social Inclusion, Neighbourhood Renewal and agenda’s within the LAA. This will, I feel, be a very challenging experience.
