It was announced today that Stewart Segal, chief executive of the Association of Employment and Learning Providers (AELP), will be taking up a new role with the national training provider 3aaa.
The appointment will be effective from April 2016 and Stewart remains as CEO of AELP until that time. AELP also announced that Stewart will continue to work with the AELP Board as a member to ensure continuity on a number of policy issues.
Stewart has worked with AELP in a number of roles since its formation in 1998. He was one of the original Directors and then worked with AELP as the funding and contracting expert for 10 years before becoming CEO in 2013. Stewart will have completed nearly 3 years as CEO and will continue to work with AELP as a representative member organisation and supporting the work on policy issues such as Apprenticeship reform.
Martin Dunford OBE, chairman of AELP, said: “Stewart has done an excellent job in what is an extremely demanding role. We have many members and a multitude of relationships with government, their agencies and many other stakeholders and Stewart has managed this growing network very effectively.
“During his time as CEO, AELP has achieved a great deal during a period of substantial change. AELP is in a very strong position with Apprenticeships, skills and employability at the centre of the government’s agenda and the voice of training providers is stronger than ever.
“The AELP management team is very experienced and will maintain the support for members. AELP’s membership has grown to over 770 in the last two years and the AELP Board has developed proposals to drive even closer links with local provider networks and employers.
“It is more important than ever that we have a strong provider voice and I am pleased that Stewart will continue to support AELP on the policy agenda.
“We shall be starting the recruitment process for the new CEO imminently.”
