We have started a host of new initiatives, won lots of awards and are well financed, all bar one of JGA’s 20 or so training programmes are new within the past 18 months. Now we need to market and sell them effectively and make sure that we educate, train and support lots more people.
The sales team led by John Riley picked up this theme in the next interactive workshop. The marketing and events team lead by Jubril Enyoisi focused on ‘sustaining a premium brand and memorable stakeholder experience’ across the provision. After lunch Head of Skills, Biddy Lall focused on teaching quality and defining what makes a programme “JGA” and then Mesma presented their impressive new online quality tool – one to think about for the future. Finally most of us piled down to Innov8’s construction and motor vehicle workshops to learn how to change tyres and build brick walls. My learning was that I’ll never be a bricklayer, my wall was Pisan in its leaningness. 😊
Thank you in particular to the presenters and to our childcare specialists Judith Saxon and Nicola Saxon-Duke for whom the day necessitated a commute from Essex and an overnight stay.
