Chris Simmons My role within n-ergy is Regional Manager for the Wales Region and I have responsibility for managing a team of five assessors in all the South and West Wales prisons. I started with n-ergy in 2011 as an QCF/NVQ assessor, then progressed to the role of Lead Assessor and more recently, promoted to my current role.\\\\'è Prior to working with n-ergy, I have worked in training and assessing for over twenty years of which eight years was within the Armed Forces (Royal Navy). I have also assessed and managed teams within the construction industry. Working within the offender reform sector is different and can be challenging sometimes; however, I enjoy my work here at n-ergy. Helping our candidates in custody gain new skills and the confidence to find permanent work on release is very rewarding. It really makes the job worthwhile when we present our learners with their certificates especially those who have never had a qualification!
