CEO of Qube Learning, Joe Crossley

Directing an organisation that is shaping the way for education provision and employment support across the nation, the CEO of Qube Learning, Joe Crossley, has been labelled the Most Influential CEO by popular title CEO Monthly.

An ex-retail Manager, Joe has always been driven by the success of others and how he can make that happen.

Now sitting at the top of a business that promotes and implements Apprenticeships, Traineeships, and learning programmes, he believes everyone deserves the chance to harvest a path to victory.

Joe Crossley says: ‘To steer a team who are making a difference to so many people’s lives, really is an honour. To have my work recognised is a huge achievement and one I cannot celebrate alone. Though I sit as CEO, I am supported by a great team and have spent many years encouraging team spirit, equality and fairness, which is reflected in how we work. To be named Most Influential CEO will certainly be one of the top moments in my career! I look forward to what the future holds for Qube Learning and how we can continue to make positive changes through experience and learning. With so many opportunities available, doors will remain ajar for all no matter what their background’.

Having passed up the opportunity to complete a degree in Occupational Health in 1997, Joe spent 12 months moving around the UK, learning about all aspects of retail, customer service, marketing, staff and sales management. Joe then joined Qube Learning in 2014 as Commercial Director, having spent seven years prior to that with a local family run training provider.

With a drive to succeed, Joe was made Business Development Director in 2016, a role that focused on securing and working with larger employers who would be levy payers. During his time in this position, Joe and his team secured numerous national and multi-national employer accounts for the business.

Then in 2017, Joe was promoted to Chief Executive Officer of Qube Learning and has since made a point of communicating regularly with his team to ensure they are all working from the same page. Not wanting to be seen as unapproachable, Joe believes a title does not have to mask the real human beneath it and is very open in his professional approach.

Joe’s progressive thinking has seen the business win many credible awards that represent their core objectives, such as the AAC Care Provider of the Year and Educate North Social Mobility Provider of the Year for their work in helping disengaged young people into work, highlighting their drive to increase employability within that demographic. Not only working with young people, Qube Learning are recognised for their later in life learning for mature individuals looking to increase their skill set or explore a new profession.

Qube Learning believe that developing skills, whatever stage you are in your career, looking at vocational and creative skills, rather than just academic status is the key to unravelling true talent.

Qube Learning is proud to be an OFSTED grade 2 (Good) Recruitment and Training Solutions Provider that works with hundreds of employers across the country to deliver a range of training and qualifications to a multitude of students.
