A new boss has taken over the helm at Runshaw College’s Business Centre.

Tim Cutler, who hails from East Lancashire, has a wealth of experience built up over a career spanning 25 years and joins Runshaw from a senior role with North Lancs Training Group (NLTG).

As head of school, he will have the task of making sure both students and employers receive quality training and development programmes that deliver a skilled workforce.

Tim said: “Runshaw Business Centre has a rich history for providing outstanding training and I’m keen to keep this reputation alive and push for even greater success.”
