Julia Miles, Managing Director
Julia set up QED in the late eighties in London after successfully running a thriving training centre for the London Chamber of Commerce for several years. Julia was around at the very becoming of the revolution in competence based vocational training and qualifications and QED became a centre with City and Guilds specialising in qualifications for those who were actively supporting these processes – the trainers, assessors and verifiers. She has also assisted many organisations to become accredited centres in their own right, establishing the first City and Guilds/ILM centre in the USA for the Georgia Academy in the late 90s.
QED delivered management and leadership training from the outset, becoming accredited by NEBSM/ILM in the nineties for Management qualifications. In 2004 Julia was delighted that QED became one of the first pilot centres for the ILM Coaching and Mentoring qualifications helping hundreds of customers become qualified coaches and mentors ever since.
Julia is also passionate about enterprise and supporting small business owners through group programmes and individual coaching and was nominated as Sussex Business Mentor of the Year by the Women’s Business Awards in 2016.
