Edward Coley

As Head of Skills and Employability at Plymouth City Council, Ed has been able to help develop Building Plymouth from when he started in 2015.

As part of a very wide remit at Plymouth City Council, he has been able to bring knowledge and experience gained from a career dedicated to improving the lives of others across a number of skills and employability sectors to bear with Building Plymouth.

Ed has worked previously in skills policy, programme and project management within economic develop and regeneration and originally has a background working for training providers from both the private and FE sector. As a central theme with this, he has always worked with and helped to support the value of apprenticeships to both employers and applicants alike.

“It has been great to see Building Plymouth grow and see the value of partnership to address common issues known to us all.”
