A new collaboration between Able Personnel and LC Education will provide enhanced career support and access to specialist resources for functional skills professionals working in the Education & Training sector. Pete Middleton of LC Education explains how.

Pete writes: “As we headed into 2024, we recognised the importance of developing partnerships with other organisations in the Further Education sector. One of those links was between our resource platform,, and Able Personnel. We would like to encourage organisations to see the benefits of collaboration with others.

Julie Lawrence from Able Personnel and her team are a great fit for us as a partner. A large percentage of our audience comprises freelance tutors, who are often interested in securing new teaching roles, while we also have organisational members who are looking to source teaching staff.

Able Personnel have twenty years as a leading national Further Education recruiter, and a 98% client retention rate. Julie’s vison of creating a leading agency has come to fruition thanks to her sector knowledge and to her ability to really relate to both candidates and employers. After knowing Julie for several years, it seemed a natural progression for us to refer people looking for new roles to Able Personnel.  Likewise, Julie shares details of our website with her clients to make their life easier when it comes to functional skills delivery.

We encourage everyone reading to think about what connections you can make with other organisations. Consider those that fill a gap that you are not able to provide yourself and those with complementary services. You could become strong referral partners for each other.”
