Congratulating Sue Husband OBE, Dr Neil Bentley-Gockmann, Chief Executive, WorldSkills UK said:
“Congratulations to Sue Husband who has been awarded an OBE in the Queen’s New Year honours list.
“Sue was a fantastic champion of our work during her time at the ESFA and she was a hugely valued member of our medal-winning team at WorldSkills Kazan 2019. In her role of Official Delegate for WorldSkills she helped drive forward our ambitions to harness insights from the WorldSkills’ global network to help mainstream excellence in training across the UK. These ambitions were realised in 2020 with the launch of the WorldSkills UK Centre of Excellence. As we look ahead to 2021, we will continue to build on our international work to help deliver the high-quality standard of skills that employers need.”
