Meet the Skills & Apprenticeship Hub Team

Daniel Degg

Skills Hub Manager

In 2020 the GBSLEP Skills and Apprenticeship Hub was launched - a key skills initiative that allows us to deliver a totally business focused skills offer to employers across the GBSLEP area. I manage the development and operation of the Hub which acts as a vehicle to deliver our employer focused responses to Government initiatives; and, with our partners, we will implement solutions that will bring job creation initiatives together with current business needs to aid recovery.

Ashi Sattar

Apprenticeship Adviser

I have been working within the skills and education sector for over 20 years. As the apprenticeship advisor at the GBSLEP I work with employers to design and develop a totally demand led approach to training, bringing all the expertise and support services that are available in our area under one umbrella – a one stop shop for businesses to have their training and skills needs met. I work with  employers on their training needs analyses and develop a bespoke skills plan that identifies appropriate programmes and provision in a focused package of support to purely meet their business needs.
