Based in Chesterfield in the East Midlands, Surepath Training is led by its two Directors, Dr Andy Goodwin & Julie Goodwin.
Andy has nearly 35 years experience in consultancy, research, university lecturing and staff development matters in the civil engineering sector. He has lead Surepath Training since it was formed in 2012. Before that he was a Divisional Director at a leading large consultancy where he led their regional civils sector with some 60 staff, and had responsibility for staff development matters. This has given him a good understanding from an operational viewpoint of the requirements and cost pressures on development matters, whilst previous experience as a Senior Lecturer at a University gave him skills in course design and delivery. To compliment all of this, he is a very experienced ICE Reviewer, and has mentored numerous graduates and apprentices as a Supervising Civil Engineer and as an Approved Mentor.
Julie is experienced in business administration and comes into the training sector from a background in the education sector with some focus on special educational needs. With her approachable nature she is keen to provide excellent customer support, and with Andy she will be looking to engage with our customers early. She also acts part time as the office manager to ensure the smooth running of the business.
The training courses themselves are delivered by Andy and a network of trainers who specialise in different areas.
