Adele Oxberry

AELP London Board Member
Managing Director at Umbrella Training

Adele has worked in the work based learning sector since 2000, following a successful career in the hospitality sector. She started her 'learning sector' career as an assessor and is now the owner of Umbrella, a company that supports elite employers with their apprenticeship programmes.

In 2006, Adele was one of the key personnel who founded a well-known national provider not only with a small financial investment but also with direct involvement in writing bids. Adele headed the London region which was the first region to gain a direct contract with the Learning and Skills Council. Initially at the start, London was a “one woman show” to being a region in 2012 with a workforce of over 68. Both strategically and operationally, Adele developed the region which sat as the highest performing region for just over 6 years.

Adele has a real passion for Apprenticeships and the opportunities they bring to young people. Umbrella is fortunate to work with some very good employers who can luckily “sing from the same hymn sheet” in up skilling their workforce and who have the desire to have real ownership of an effective Apprenticeship programme.
