Janet Baker is a training expert who heads up the Inspire Training Midlands team and delivers courses covering all aspects of business and IT across a wide range of sectors.
What’s more, she is an accredited coach and is passionate about helping people to reach their full potential, both in their personal and professional lives.
Early success as a multi-lingual secretary, saw her go on to work as a personal assistant at senior executive level in various private and public sector organisations.
Qualifying with the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development was pivotal in Janet’s career, galvanising her into making the move to specialise in training.
As an NVQ Assessor and Internal Verifier, she enjoyed many years of delivering NVQs and Modern Apprenticeships, in addition to providing corporate clients with training in IT and personal development skills.
Ultimately, Janet was appointed to manage a dynamic training organisation in Birmingham, reporting directly to the board of directors, before later deciding to go it alone.
Since 2002, Janet hasn’t looked back, running her own training business and working with organisations from all fields, including manufacturing, services, public, education, voluntary and the Arts.
For several years, Janet also carried out work for leading UK examining body, OCR, as a Visiting Standards Moderator for Key Skills, and then as a Training Consultant for Functional Skills.
Her approach is to create a friendly, participative learning environment where delegates engage to learn new skills, gain confidence, realise opportunities and, most importantly, develop as people as well as employees.
