Vice Council Chair - Dr. Sonia Reynolds
As a research neuroscientist, I have refocused my skills to promote education and regeneration in the voluntary/community sectors. With a public appointment on student finance reviews (2000 and 2004), I was a Welsh Board member of the University for Industry and the only FEFC member transferred into ELWa.
I led development of the Welsh Credit Framework Project, and as Director of Dysg oversaw its merger into Welsh Government.
Between 2006 and 2013 I held senior posts in Welsh Government, leading policy implementation on Transformation and quality, brokering collaboration on Further Education mergers. As Welsh Government Regional Director for South West Wales I gained a reputation for quality stakeholder engagement and leadership.
