Skills for Care has announced that its director of Operations, Andy Tilden, will leave the organisation next year.
Tilden returned to his post earlier this year, after a year as the organisation’s Interim CEO, before handing over to Oonagh Smyth in March.
He leaves Skills for Care after 20 years of supporting learning and development opportunities for the adult social care workforce in England.
Commenting on his departure, Smyth said: “I am lucky to have had Andy’s experience and counsel as I began my role as CEO but I appreciate that he feels that now is the right time to take a step back and pursue other opportunities.
“We are obviously sad that he is leaving, but he will remain a valued member of the team until early 2021 so there is a smooth transition into a new strategy year.
“All of us at Skills for Care owe Andy a debt for his leadership as our Interim CEO, and he has made a huge contribution over the last two decades supporting employers to offer high quality learning and development to their workers.”
