NCFE Apprenticeship Services appoints new Managing Director
We’re delighted to welcome David Gallagher as the new Managing Director of NCFE Apprenticeship Services.
David has enjoyed a successful career in employment and skills for over 15 years. This has included working in the public sector for the Learning and Skills Council (now ESFA), several private sector training providers and also through establishing several successful new business start-ups within the sector.
David said: “I’m so pleased to be joining NCFE to lead the end-point assessment business at such an exciting time for apprenticeships. I really believe in the importance of apprenticeships and the benefits of learning as you work and upskilling throughout life. The new apprenticeship system provides a fantastic opportunity to help shape the education and training landscape for years to come. End-point assessment brings a new way of working for apprenticeships and NCFE are proud to be offering assessment services that will really improve the value and quality of apprenticeships, making a positive difference to thousands of learners in the process.
The learner has to be at the heart of everything we do and seeing the culture and values at NCFE, who are so passionate about the importance of education and making a real difference to people’s lives, makes me really excited for the future.”
David brings with him a strong network and reputation and we look forward to working with him to develop our rapidly growing Apprenticeship Services team and EPA offer.
