Ep 26 - The importance of delivering diverse trainings because no one way of learning fits all - with Jane Shipley founder of ELSA

Jane Shipley is a passionate teaching professional, with creativity and a reputation of ‘getting things done’ and set up ELSA Next Generation, a not-for-profit business to help deliver learning in many diverse ways.

Jane’s interest in the business world began in France and then she joined hypermarket company Savacentre Ltd before becoming the youngest store manager ever appointed by high street chain Argos.

After a nine-year break to have a family, Jane was asked to teach Business Studies, Retail Management, Customer Service, Hospitality and Life Skills at North Hertfordshire College. Simultaneously, she undertook a Certificate of Education with Greenwich University and then joined the charity Young Enterprise – initially as a volunteer and then as a full-time member of staff.

Jane was conscious that no one way of learning fits all. To address this gap in the market, she set up ELSA Next Generation, a not-for-profit business and started delivering bespoke programmes and workshops, all ensuring young people begin to understand the steps needed from education to employment.

ELSA Next Generation is a proud Partner of the Hertfordshire Virtual School and has the support of over 500 business and community volunteers.

Jane is continually looking to inspire, enthuse and excite others whilst ensuring that she is equally challenging herself, through her love of learning. 

Join me every week to hear a new gem that you can take away to increase your confidence and enjoyment for running your own business and to help you learn new business skills to live your best life.
