Profounds Unsung Heroes


There are a lot of things that go on behind the scenes here at Profound Group to ensure our training and employment services are of a continuous high standard. We believe it is important that we share some of the recent successes achieved by our Data and Compliance Team.

Our Data and Compliance team are in charge of the timely and accurate processing of data and information across Profound Group. This includes managing learner and employer details, working with various awarding bodies to register and claim learner certificates; all whilst remaining compliant with the Skills Funding Agency (SFA)* rules. The team already work with 4 large North East Further Education Providers and hold 7 partnership agreements with other training providers.

Take a look at the facts & figures…

–          a huge 7946 certificates registered and claimed since 2011

–          3666 new starters processed since August 2014

–          2373 completed qualifications processed since August 2014

–          2352 exams (not including resists) booked since August 2014

If our reputation for quality data compliance processes wasn’t already enough, in March 2015 the team received a 0% error rate in their SFA audit!

The team’s understanding of audit compliance processes means if you work with us, we can ensure your staff are trained the same standards.

About Paul Champion

Some have called me a leader, and a entrepreneur, they say I have integrity, presence and skills to ensure continuous improvement and success in whatever challenges I face. They also tell me that I am positive, resilient and motivating. I say, I'm just a normaI guy from Gateshead in the North of England, who started as an apprentice engineer. I have been in the right place at the right time and in the wrong place at the wrong time! I have successfully initiated and led complex organizations and situations to completion and success, and I have been in some jobs where success seemed untouchable. Mainly though, I have tried to learn everyday, help people to progress and learn the skills they need to be successful. I have had the privilege of working with some great people locally across the UK and more recently internationally in Asia, Europe and now USA, where I am lucky enough to work for where I am head of 3aaa USA. This website is just me having an outlet to talk about all those thoughts, ideas and things I learn that pass through my head every day when I face the challenge of doing business. I will also rant on about how great apprenticeships are, and how you can help change peoples lives through them. After all thats how I got to do the great things that I have done, and also I am still an apprentice everyday! All I ask is that if you find it interesting then leave a comment and share what you read. THANK YOU.
