VTCT appoints new trustees


Three new trustees have joined the board of the Vocational Training Charitable Trust (VTCT) and iTEC.

The new appointments are former Welsh Language Commissioner, Meri Huws (pictured bottom right), M Squared Media's Executive Director, Jayne Lewis-Orr (pictured bottom left), and consultant to the professional association sector, Stephanie Richardson (pictured top).

VTCT now has twelve trustees, with the expansion allowing the board to concentrate on the organisation's charitable purposes, whilst providing qualifications and education resources which support the challenges and opportunities faced by learners, educators and businesses.

Alan Woods OBE, CEO at VTCT and iTEC, says, “We are delighted to welcome Meri, Stephanie and Jayne to the Board of Trustees at VTCT and iTEC. Alongside their professional skills and expertise, they each bring the dedication and passion needed to help support our mission and charitable objective for the advancement of education for public benefit.”

Professor Dr Chris Laws, VTCT's Chair of the Board of Trustees, adds, “These three individuals will continue to ensure that VTCT and iTEC go from strength to strength in the pursuit of securing our charitable vision and ensuring learners have a direct line of sight to a job, or have the ability to enhance their career prospects with new and improved skills, demonstrated by world-class qualifications and assessment.”
