Hi, I am Jagdeep Soor, Head of Strategic Partnerships leading our work to promote equality, diversity, inclusion, equity and social mobility for marginalised groups, through the Multicultural Apprenticeship Alliance and The Apprenticeship Diversity & Social Mobility Forum.
I joined the organisation in July 2022, having worked in the employment and skills sectors for over 25 years. I have procured, mobilised and operationally managed multi-million-pound mainstream contracts across Great Britain & Northern Ireland.
A highly skilled and recognised senior manager, I have also been instrumental in influencing policy change through collating data and evidence to secure Government funding for disadvantaged and marginalised groups.
My drive is to make a difference for those that are at most danger of missing out and ensuring that there is equity of opportunity for all, regardless of social status.
I am a Fellow of the Institute of Employability Professionals and a judge for many sector awards including ERSA Employability Awards and Worldskills ED&I Heroes.
During my past I played field hockey and now generally pass on my experience through coaching. I am also an avid Manchester United FC fan, enjoy various genres of music and spending time with family and friends.
