What did you do before you joined Hart Learning + Development?


“Several years ago, I worked in retail management and became a qualified apprenticeship assessor. I have always had a passion for learning and development, so I took an opportunity to transition into working in the apprenticeship sector. Over many years, I’ve been actively engaged in teaching and management roles – and since 2017 I have been with Hart Learning + Development.


“During my time with Hart L+D, I’ve partnered with numerous organisations to support the effective implementation – and ongoing success – of their apprenticeship programmes. I love to see the personal and professional development of individuals and I strongly believe in the value of apprenticeships both for young people seeking an entry into employment, and individuals aiming to upskill or reskill to ensure their adaptability in today’s ever-changing job market.”


What do you enjoy the most about working with Hart Learning & Development?


“We have a fantastic team, who are all working towards the same goal of supporting our apprentices to achieve their utmost potential. I am lucky to be part of this diverse group of professionals, as each team member wholeheartedly prioritises our learners, placing them at the core of everything they do.


“One project that stands out prominently for me is the successful launch of our new Retail Apprenticeship programme back in 2018. The enthusiasm from individuals embarking on their apprenticeship journey was truly inspiring and meeting so many people excited about their educational and professional development was incredible.”
