Sue Ramsey joins National Skills Academy for Financial Services

The National Skills Academy for Financial Services has appointed Sue Ramsey as regional director for Yorkshire and Humber.

Ramsey will lead development in the region and ensure the Skills Academy delivers education, skills and training that meets employer needs.

Prior to joining the NSAFS, Ramsey was UK learning development manager for National Australia Bank Group, where she introduced apprenticeships and developed a skills and qualification curriculum.

In that role she was a member of the Yorkshire and Humber regional employer board of the Skills Academy.

Prior to that she was learning manager at Abbey where her team was responsible for identifying, designing and delivering learning programmes for employees.

NSAFS chief executive Sylvia Perrins says: “We are fortunate to have someone of Sue’s calibre and experience on board. She is a respected financial services leader in the region and has a real passion for facilitating development in others and generating improved performance through learning.

“I look forward to strengthening relationships with both providers and employers in the region with Sue on board.”

Ramsey adds: “As a former client of the Skills Academy I am passionate about its work and can bring an employer’s perspective to the challenges we are facing in skills development in the industry.”

    Blah Blah and more Blah.
    I wonder how many clients Ms Ramsey has actually looked after. I bet she can buzzword with the best but would never dream of taking the risk of pinning her income and career hopes on her ability to help clients make decisions.
    Who pays for this nonsense anyway? I expect if you strip the layers away you would find that those who produce the business that keeps the wheels turning (IFAs) are also paying for QUANGOs like the NSAFS
