As part of senior management teams in colleges and private training organisations, Andrew has held strategic responsibility for all aspects of operations, including business development, marketing and sales, delivery, quality, and finance.
Andrew is a passionate and committed senior learning and development professional with over 20 years' experience in the further education and skills sector.
Andrew has worked in the further education sector since 1992, and completed his Westminster Business School MBA in 2003.
