EAL has announced a new Managing Director will be taking the helm at the specialist awarding organisation for industry qualifications.

Julia Chippendale (pictured below) has been appointed to the post, effective from 1st September 2013.

Julia has previously worked for both Enginuity and EAL. She re-joined EAL in March following a role as director of a building services company, which she helped to grow, despite the economic downturn, through securing high profile customers and long term contracts.

Julia joins as new figures show EAL is making great strides, capturing 74% of all engineering awarding across the country.

”I can’t wait to get started,” said Julia. “EAL is making great strides equipping tens thousands of learners with robust and industry relevant skills, in order to secure the talent pipeline for the science, engineering and manufacturing technologies sectors.”

Alastair Imrie, Chair of EAL, said: “Julia brings a great deal of relevant knowledge and experience to the role and, together with colleagues at EAL, we will have the best team to deliver continuing strong EAL performance and strategy.”
