Tony Hanham, Apprenticeship Programme Manager (Blackpool and the Fylde College)

”I have worked with Rebecca for the last 15 months, in that time I have seen Rebecca’s strong ability to engage with customers, create a positive working environment and help build a team capable of dealing with the challenges that Apprenticeships bring while always putting the Learner at the front of her focus. Rebecca is outstanding in her ability to organise, prioritise, delegate and focus on ways to move a business forward, always setting realistic and achievable goals and deadlines to benefit all concerned.  

Rebecca approached Blackpool and The Fylde College to deliver the Aerospace Degree Apprenticeship programme Level 4, 5 and 6 over a 5-year Apprenticeship term. Rebecca and Marshall’s in a little over 2 months engaged with us to help co-ordinate the delivery. The delivery was structured to be achieved via a state-of-the-art information delivery suit set up by Rebecca and her dedicated team in the Learning Centre at Marshall so allowing us to deliver the lessons from 250 miles away in Blackpool via Zoom. To complement the delivery several onsite visits to Marshall’s by the Highly trained Tutors from the College to do practical elements of the course were organised. The students experience from the first Cohort starting September 2019 has produced some fantastic outstanding results in the first year. Rebecca is a very much ‘Hands on Manager’ and is a pleasure to work with.”
