eResponse appoints client service director
eResponse Group has appointed Craig Hughes as its client service director.
Hughes has joined the group’s eResponse Training division to oversee the Adult Learning Loan Services Scheme. The service is aimed at people who want to gain qualifications or launch a new career and offers the 24+ Advanced Learning Loan to cover course fees charged by training providers and colleges.
Reporting to commercial director Sam Morgan, Hughes has 14 years’ experience in the industry.
Hughes said, “I’m delighted to be joining eResponse to offer this vital support and to lead such an exciting project which will eventually be available on a national scale.
“Funding for adult learners is gradually being reduced with support now being prioritised by learner loans. That is because they enable people to gain the higher level qualifications and skills they need and will only rise in popularity with government plans to lower the qualification age to 19 and make more advanced qualifications available in the years ahead.”
Sam Morgan commented, “We are launching the new funding stream with pilot courses in Worcestershire and Warwickshire and then rolling it out nationally across several sectors, especially for driving qualifications through a specialist division we are set to launch later this month.
“We’re starting 2016 as we finished 2015, creating opportunities and helping everyone to seize them. Craig’s a fantastic addition to the team and brings a wealth of knowledge and delivery experience.”
