Jade Gibson started at Progress Schools in May 2016 as a tutor, with a drive and passion to change the lives of young people. Manager Charlotte Barton said ‘it quickly felt like Jade had worked with us for years. She rapidly built excellent relationships with colleagues and students and her infectious laugh can brighten up any day!’.
In February 2017, Jade was appointed Senior tutor after being awarded an outstanding observation by an external company. As a Senior Tutor, Jade led by example and supported colleagues in their own development. On numerous occasions, Jade demonstrated an aptitude to resolve conflict in and outside the classroom and to liaise effectively with outside agencies to get the best for each student.
Jade has now taken on an interim position as Operations Manager which was made permanent in August. Progress Schools are excited to see what Jade does in this role and look forward to supporting her on this journey.
Jade said ‘I am very proud to say that I work for a company that recognises its staff and encourages promotion from within’.
