Regional Structure and Contacts

Regional Structure

The South West Region is led operationally by the Regional Management Team (RMT) under the Regional Director, Pete Caldwell.

The RMT consists of :

Education Director (Currriculum and Provision) and Lead Director London and South West Regions - Pete Caldwell

Regional Education Manager - John Young


Regional Operations Manager - Jacky Moulsher

There is a Quality Assurance Group, consisting of some members of RMT and other core staff who oversee all curriculum quality issues, including Observation of Teaching and Learning. We hold the matrix standard for information, advice and guidance and progress is monitored via this group.

The Regional Committee, consisting of core staff and volunteers, is responsible for the strategic management and governance function of the Region. Chair of this committee is David Hinchcliffe. This committee is serviced by two sub-committees, Finance (Chair Richard Crisp) and Education (Chair Frank Colls). Meetings are held around 5 times a year and elsewhere on this web site you can see copies of agendas and minutes.

Course organisation is overseen by our local Learning Managers and Course Programme Workers. Often they will be responding to requests from local branches. In addition to our Organisers we have specialist Skills for Life co-ordinators who work across the region with employers as well as community groups. See "About us" for further information.
