Andy Mason CBE

Academy Director

I am privileged to be the Academy Director, which means everyone else gets to do all of the hard work!  My role in the team is the bloke that steers the ship. Unlike some of the specialists on the team, I have done some varied and different things in my career, running an Ebola Treatment Centre in Sierra Leone being but one of them.

Words of wisdom – If work is the cornerstone of future well-being, I believe, that training is the cement that keeps it in place and on which we can continue to build

I deliver Smart Meter Installer training.  I’ve been a qualified electrician for over 20 year, run my own business and worked in the metering industry for several years. I focus on the power side of the programme, helping learners get to grips with the electrical aspects of the course.  I know all about currents and I’m quite partial to them in a bun!
