Ms Sue Alexander


I initially worked at the Central Criminal Court, Old Bailey, as a verbatim court reporter and subsequently as a bilingual administrator in Geneva. After gaining a part-time degree in French Studies and Literature, and a CertEd, I subsequently gained the Assessor, Internal and External Verifier awards and managed the provision of adult workplace learning at Kingston College before setting up my own training company. I won and delivered contracts with many heritage organisations, including the V&A Museum, the Royal Collection (Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle) and Historic Royal Palaces (Hampton Court Palace, Tower of London, Kensington Palace).  I inspected workplace training with the Adult Learning Inspectorate.  I now enjoy teaching shorthand to both MA and BA students.
