"Jane Opie worked as the interim ALS Manager at Barnsley College from November 2011 until December 2012.
Jane had a significant impact during her time at the college as she repositioned the department and put in place totally new structures, policies and procedures. Jane reviewed the whole learner journey for learners in receipt of ALS and used this to drive the operational changes.
During her time at the college Jane oversaw significant improvements to the department that led to a much better learner experience and increased satisfaction levels. Jane was able to affect and manage rapid change and quality improvement during her time with us all with a calm and approachable attitude.
Jane was a positive, diligent and confident colleague, I would have no hesitation in engaging Jane’s services again."
Angela Foulkes, Vice Principal Students Barnsley College
"Jane joined our college to review the quality of our supported learning provision and the structure.
Jane brought a findings report to CLG within 2 weeks which was clear, focused and to the point.
Jane got on well with the teams and helped them to identify key areas for improvement. We now have a structure that has clear accountability and joined up thinking and Jane’s contributions and subject knowledge helped us achieve that.
I would have no hesitation in contacting Jane for help again she was a pleasure to work with."
Katrina McCarthy, Deputy Principal, Curriculum and Performance
"Jane is a highly talented expert within the field of Inclusive Learning. She has the ability to couple a very sound and pragmatic approach with the strategic needs of this area of work. She has excellent people management skills, remains calm and professional at all times in whatever aspect of her work she is focussing upon and commands the respect of everyone she works with at all levels within an organisation. Jane stands out as one of the most outstanding consultants I have ever worked with."
Karen Edwards, Director of Human resources, Tresham College of Further and Higher Education
"Just one word to describe Jane – SUPERB! Jane is doing a fantastic job for us. I only wish we could ‘bottle’ her!"
