Olivia Campbell

Business Director

Company Business Director – Co Founder of London Stansted Training Academy, providing accredited qualifications awarded by Skills For Justice (SFJ).


I have over 15 years’ experience working periodically since 1992 in the Retail Management and within the Training & Development of both Public and Private Sectors with the last eight years spent working within Judicial, Community and Social Justice. The extensive experience I have gained across business-to-consumer and public services has impacted on the understanding I have for the needs of Learners. This understanding also resulted in further research to develop a training programme that addressed the barriers to further education encountered by the survivors of domestic abuse. The programme was designed to build the confidence and self-esteem for those with low confidence and self-esteem to encourage further development and progression.The impact and difference the programme had made on the lives of the participants won the prestige National Training Award for the East of England in 2010.This desire, for quality, to be effective, and to truly care about the needs of learners in getting them real results, has resulted in my participation with European Partners to implement a global online employability programme for Europe. As a Company Director my message is clear across all target markets – A combination of the best experience for our learners, recognition of our staff, the partnerships we forge, our credibility and quality standards as a Training Provider will save our clients and learners not only time and money, should they train with us, it will also ensure they gain a highly recognised accredited qualification to achieve their desired outcomes.

Kenneth Aubrey Butler

Chief Executive Officer

Chief Executive Officer and Co Founder of the London Stansted Training Academy, providing accredited qualifications awarded by Skills For Justice (SFJ).


I first began working in education in 1971, when I stood as a Senior Manager in Operations, now more commonly known as the Logistics Division. I was responsible in 1988 for setting up the NVQ center for the Open University, where I trained to become an Internal Verifier. During this time I acquired invaluable skills, which led to training hundreds of learners in their NVQs offered by The Open University. After 28 years there, I departed as a Chief Verifier in 1999, to establish my own company, Commercial Training Services. We provided NVQs, QCF certificates, Diplomas and Apprenticeships to the Leicestershire and Northamptonshire area for over 12 years. We partnered with many different institutions, including charities, colleges and corporate organisations, to train their staff and clients in accredited qualifications.The changes in government objectives have led to the diversification of Commercial Training Services UK Ltd as a community interest company, which has allowed for further expansion into other areas, thus launching as London Stansted Training Academy. This new academy has a focus on delivering accredited qualifications in Community Justice and Social Welfare – all Vital skills in a highly competitive jobs market. The ultimate aim of London Stansted Training Academy is to give more choices and more chances to every individual who are looking to advance their career.

Jackie Butler

Senior Assessor

In 1997 my husband and I set up our own Company as a Training Provider with myself as a Director. Being exposed to a training and development environment gave me the opportunity to train as an Assessor as well as an Internal Verifier.


Since then till present I worked as a Chief Assessor taking learners through their NVQ. Our Centre completed many hundreds of NVQs for Job Seekers accessing the services of Leicester and Northampton Job Centres. It is during this time, I was granted two Special Awards, for enabling learners with learning disabilities to access Further education to gain recognised accredited qualifications.

One case in particular that stands out is of a learner with a hearing impediment who passed a Level 2 Business Administration NVQ, and we were able to progress her into employment as a result.

My career in business administration where I worked for nineteen years as a Private Secretary to two managing director and this has enabled me to assess the following qualifications: Business Administration, Accounts, Customer Service, Retail. I.A.G. Warehousing and Management.
