Meet Sarah Howard, Level 5 HR Consultant Apprentice

Sarah Howard, Head of People & Culture at MCS, began studying at Warrington & Vale Royal College as a teenager on a Travel & Tourism course, before embarking on a successful career in human resources. Since returning to the college as an adult student, Sarah has completed our CIPD Level 3 Foundation Certificate People Practice course and has since progressed on to the level 5 apprenticeship.

Sarah has established an incredibly successful career at MCS, having joined the organisation in 2019 as only its fourth employee. She joined MCS as a Helpdesk Manager before becoming its first-ever Head of People & Culture. As the organisation was growing, Sarah knew resources needed to be dedicated to maintaining the company’s culture and she supported proposals to create a team with that goal. Then was born the People Team, led by Sarah.

To support her new role, Sarah decided to expand her knowledge by enrolling on our CIPD course. Having completed the Level 3 foundation Certificate People Practice at the beginning of the year, Sarah decided to continue her learning journey by undertaking a level 5 human resource apprenticeship.

When asked about her experience at the college, Sarah says: “My tutors have been amazing. They are so knowledgeable and supportive.” She is also complimentary of the way the course fits around her busy schedule and is encouraging her to think outside of the box when it comes to her role.

In future, Sarah hopes to stay with MCS and continue to support the organisation as it develops even further. We would like to wish Sarah the very best of luck with her already successful career!
