Joe Turner is a seasoned veteran within the industry, having extensive operational and leadership experience across a number of top tier training providers, where he has delivered exemplary quality standards in both publicly funded and commercial training programmes.

Through Pavilion Training, the Group has established itself as one of the leading champions of employability support for jobseekers across the West Midlands; working to create opportunities and develop workplace readiness skills for individuals out of work. Joe’s appointment is part of the long-term ambition to increase the outreach of the team to create more opportunities that can change more lives within the community.

“Having been impressed with what was happening across the businesses, I’m delighted to be joining in an executive role to help deliver an ambitious long-term growth strategy working alongside the founders” said Joe Turner, “The team we have here in Birmingham has an incredible track record of supporting jobseekers and helping both SMEs and large organisations to develop their workforces. Over the next 3 to 5 years, we aim to be part of the backbone of the employer and jobseeker communities across the West Midlands.

“3Spirit is already well known within the Care sector for its quality and impact across its training programmes, but I’m excited to support the national rollout of our enhanced Level 2-5 Adult Care Apprenticeships and some fantastic new additions soon to be announced.”

Talon Golding, Director and Co-Founder at Novo said “The appointment of Joe Turner marks an exciting chapter for the Group as we look to scale operations and develop the capabilities of our fast-growing team. Taj and I set out to try and make a difference for young people across Birmingham and we are incredibly proud to be in a position where our mission as well as our ambitions has evolved; however, to deliver these targets we needed a true industry expert with a deep passion for the sector to take the helm and make the next part of the journey a reality!”
