Richard Huish College appoints new Head of Apprenticeships and Adult Skills

Richard Huish College has announced the appointment of Kate Goldsworthy as the new Head of Apprenticeships and Adult Skills. Richard Huish College is a Sixth Form College based in Taunton, offering a wide range of A Level’s, Vocational courses, Apprenticeships and Professional courses.

Previously working for TSFT Musgrove, specialising in workforce development, Kate’s experience is primarily in the Health and Social care sector. She will bring a fresh perspective to the role, working collaboratively with employers and increasing engagement between the College and local businesses. Her team will help businesses grow by looking into their skills and training gaps and responding to workforce needs.

Speaking about her new role she said: “I’m excited for this new challenge. Here at Huish we are experts at working with our business partners and employers to identify the skills and training gaps they have and then work together to bridge these gaps.”

The College currently offers a wide range of Apprenticeships within the Health and Care, Business, Accountancy, IT, Teaching and Childcare industries, with plans to expand. Learners can study Apprenticeships ranging from Level 2 all the way to Level 7 (Masters level). The Apprenticeships provide specialist skills and Huish celebrated great success at this year’s Grow Somerset Talent Apprenticeship Awards with three learners winning awards.

On the 28th June the College is hosting a Next Step Progression Event, an Open Event providing more information on Apprenticeships, professional qualifications and employment opportunities. Showcasing opportunities for all age ranges and experience.

More information about the event is available on the College website, or by emailing the Apprenticeship team on
