DIRECTOR/LEAD TUTOR

Claire Agutter

Claire is passionate about all things IT service management and brings this to her role as lead tutor. Using her background as an IT service management practitioner and consultant, Claire and her team manage the courses we add to the site to make sure they will support the careers of our customers. Using this approach, we’ve developed a balanced portfolio of mainstream areas like ITIL and emerging essential best practice like OBASHI.
