New vice-principal at Tresham
TRESHAM College of Further and Higher Education has welcomed David Higham (pictured above) as the new vice-principal responsible for Business Development and Customer Experience.
David (pictured) began his career in IT and gained extensive experience in the education sector at St Helens College and at learndirect, the country’s largest private training provider.
Using his experience in various business development roles, David has joined Tresham to increase the commercial offering of the college and develop apprenticeships and adult learning provision. He said: “I’m really excited to have joined Tresham. With the state-of-the-art facilities and such a skilled and motivated team, the potential is limitless.
“Commercial training and apprenticeships are a massive growth area that need to be realised through working alongside employers of all sizes to ensure that we, as a college, meet their business priorities through developing their existing and potential employees with the skills they need now and for the future.
“We need to ensure that we are demand-led and not supply-driven and it is very important that we focus on getting the basics around this right first.”
