Margaret Coleman, Chair
Director, Coleman Partners. Formerly Regional Director, Learning and Skills Council
Independent Education Consultant
First elected February 2011
I was pleased to be invited to stand as a trustee for Certa as I believe in volunteering and using any skills I have to help serve others particularly in the areas of learning and skills.
I was aware of the organisation's reputation for working with students who had yet to find an enthusiasm for learning, to enable them to reach their potential and progress their careers and life chances.
In addition the flexible and facilitative approach of Certa means that it is always open to ideas for working with employers, charities, schools and colleges to widen opportunities for young people and adults.
