‘I have worked with Celia for a significant number of years in her capacity with the Sector Skills Councils, Skillfast UK, both as a training professional with Johnsons Apparelmaster & an SSC Council Member.
Not only have I always found Celia to be very enthusiastic & positive when working on skills based projects but her enthusiasm is based in reality & a very good & clear understanding of employers needs & the challenges employers face when delivering qualifications. The solutions & options developed as a result are, as far as possible, geared toward meeting the needs of all the parties involved.
Indeed it was a very positive & enthusiastic meeting I had with Celia many years ago that started the project which ultimately delivered workable NVQ’s into our sector after many previous false starts.
This illustrates Celia’s ability to see projects through to their conclusion, not only in a very professional way but also in a style which encourages participation & inclusion from individuals from all levels of employment & management.
The NVQ project which started with that meeting is still in place & has now become a permanent & fixed part of our sectors development strategy.’
