Francis Farrell
Event Manager

I have worked within the education industry for over seven and half years where I was responsible for onboarding and training teachers to become Examiners/Standard Verifiers for Pearson Education. One of our main objectives was to ensure the best experience and results for our students, globally.

I recently finished a contract position as an Events and Engagement Manager at Kings College London, which allowed me to build on the marketing element as well as catering to those more niche event requirements which included: Afternoon coffees and teas with Law Academics to Graduation Ceremonies for the students.

For the last five years, I worked in the Training and Events team at Pearson Education where I became a team leader for the vocational qualification. Overseeing all training for BTec, NVQ, EPA and Functional Skills. I later was promoted to an Operations Manager where I would oversee both the general (GCSE, GCE and A-levels) and vocational qualifications. In this role, I was responsible for developing event strategies to ensure Pearson Associates (examiners, standards verifiers) were successfully trained prior to carrying out assessment duties both face2face and virtually.
