Richard Tobutt


Richard works as a Regional Skills Partnership Manager and leads on employer engagement across the Advanced Material & Manufacturing, Compound Semiconductors, Construction and Digital Technology sectors.


Richard has acquired extensive experience operating within the education, lifelong learning and skills arena and has developed effective relationships with Government (and its agencies), stakeholders, employers and providers of education and training.


After completing a Masters Degree at Cardiff Metropolitan University he found employment within local government. As a Lecturer he also gained knowledge and understanding of qualifications and training and delivered practical and theoretical elements of some BTEC, A-Level and NVQ programmes.


Richard then pioneered the work of Skills Active, the Sector Skills Council (SSC) for Active Leisure, Learning and Well-Being. Here, he led the development of the SSC in Wales for well over a decade before applying his skills across the Devolved Administrations as the Head of Home of Home Country Development. Richard secured inward investment to drive employer-led skills programmes including the development of various Apprenticeship Frameworks and National Occupational Standards (NOS).


Before taking up post with the Cardiff Capital Region Skills Partnership (CCRSP), he worked in a Director level role for a well-placed provider of work based learning and has also operated as a skills consultant on a freelance basis.
