Cathy has mentored six PEG mentees and is busy with her seventh. After teaching languages at school level, she lectured English at a teachers’ training college and then became involved with skills development at a TVET college. She therefore has a strong background of public–private partnerships and assessment and moderation practices. These skills have stood her in good stead at PEG, where she sets and marks the accreditation test.
