Karen Daly-Gherabi has become Managing Director of The Springboard Consultancy, a UK-based international training company specialising in women's development issues.

After a successful career as a senior officer in the British Army, promoting excellence, development, achievement, and diversity, Karen spent 12 years working  for The British Council, creating international opportunities, building trust and engagement through education, training and cultural relations. She succeeds the company’s founding joint CEOs, Liz Willis OBE and Jenny Daisley OBE.

Liz Willis commented, “Jenny and I are delighted with Karen’s appointment and wish her every success. She’s already familiar with the company and, as a client, has been an enthusiastic advocate of our programmes.”

Through the British Council, Karen introduced the award-winning Springboard Women’s Development Programme into the Middle East. Indeed, Karen has first-hand experience of the positive impact the Springboard programme has had on more than 17,000 women, along with the network of trainers, across the Middle East and North Africa.

The Springboard Consultancy’s Springboard Women’s Development programme enables women to identify the clear, practical and realistic steps that they want to take to make a better world for themselves at work and home, while building the practical skills and confidence to take these steps. The programme is delivered – currently in 45 countries - over a three month period, through an extensive network of licensed local trainers and, so far, has been used by over 240,000 women around the world.

According to Karen, who took up her new post on 3rd May, “The Springboard Consultancy is a fantastic company which promotes diversity in personal development - especially for women but including both genders - with a range of products that covers the complete work lifecycle, from pre-work to the end of working life. It’s wonderful to be part of such transformational development, which enables people to take control of their own futures.”

Removal of Apprenticeship Frameworks

Tuesday, 08 March 2016
By: Skills CFA
 

We have been contacted by several organisations concerned that the Business Administration level 3 framework is going to be switched off in line with the plans of SFA to remove frameworks that are either not required or have a suitable Trailblazer equivalent ready for delivery. We can confirm that the correct list can be found here and only affects Campaigning in the Business, Administration and Law Sector. This was a framework that we agreed to switch off due to zero activity. We have conducted both a National Occupational Standards and Framework consultation and from these results are planning activity for the coming year which we will keep you informed of.
