Since September 2018 I have been supporting the Community Brokerage Network with the development and delivery of their SQA customised award.
Jenny has led on designing materials, marketing and promoting the award as well as recruiting candidates from the outset of the award to our current cohort and we hope she will continue to work with us and support this programme of work as her contribution has been invaluable.
She organised, facilitated and participated in the interviews of potential candidates for the award. This helped separate the selection process of candidates from the teaching/facilitated learning process giving the selection process a degree of independence.
Jenny completed all of the follow up work bringing her expertise, excellent knowledge, skill and understanding of a complex SQA system to the role. She assisted us through the maze of paperwork and formal requirements – no mean feat!
Jenny is very well organised. She also demonstrated excellent negotiating skills and secured an SAAS contribution route for students. Working with our accountant she ensured the award was financially viable to deliver and has assisted with our pricing to ensure it is sustainable for the long term.
She has assisted us greatly in the transition from being college based to being able to deliver the award online as a result of the Covid pandemic. She introduced us and taught us how to use appropriate online platforms, various virtual tools and supported the delivery by being available for any technical challenges that arose.
Where there have been candidates who have struggled with some of the complexities of returning to learning Jenny has always been available to assist us by providing information in other formats to help meet their learning needs in an individualised way which has resulted in excellent completion rates of the award.
Jenny has the right balance between making decisions for us when it was needed and deferred as appropriate. She is very thorough in her work and works well on her own initiative but regularly updates on progress. She knows what we need doing, knows how to do it and delivers without any fuss. She focuses on finding solutions to challenges which is excellent.
