Skills head

The two organisations behind Building Our Skills have appointed Stephanie Tague to head up the campaign.

Industry awarding body GQA Qualifications, and marketing and PR agency Inside The Box Marketing have seen a supportive response for the initiative since its launch in June this year, they said.

Mick Clayton, CEO for GQA Qualifications, said: “The Building Our Skills campaign is key to heightening awareness of the industry to those leaving the educational sector, and those looking for a change of direction in their career. It’s great that Stephanie has accepted the role and will manage the campaign.”

Chris Globe, director for Inside The Box Marketing, said: “Stephanie is a very well-known figure, having worked alongside many renowned businesses over her 20-year career in the industry. Her energy and drive are perfect to take this campaign forward, and her appointment is key to ensuring the campaign’s supporters and partners, along with the industry’s media and organisations in the education sectors are well informed, and continue to lobby the cause at every possible opportunity.”

Stephanie will manage and take responsibility for the day-to-day running of Building Our Skills, helping to identify and develop networking and partnership opportunities, create ideas to promote wider awareness and of campaign and become its chief ambassador.

Stephanie will remain part of the Inside The Box Marketing team, but will be managing Building Our Skills full-time.
