To build on our existing partnership with the Federation of Awarding Bodies (FAB), the Federation’s membership as well as other awarding organisations, EPAO’s and training organisations, Peridot Partners is pleased to announce the appointment of Kristina Preston as Head of Awarding and Skills who will lead on supporting this specialist area of education.
