Jill Eaton from Educational and Sporting Futures Recognised With MBE
We were delighted to see Jill Eaton, founding director of Educational and Sporting Futures, (a Real Group company) collect her MBE honour from Princess Anne at Buckingham Pace last week. The MBE was awarded to Jill in recognition of her outstanding contribution to raising the profile of apprenticeships in further education.
As the co-director of Sporting Futures Training, Jill has played a pivotal role in supporting over 2,000 learners through sport, health, and wellbeing apprenticeships since the organization’s inception in 2011. Educational and Sporting Futures Training is dedicated to elevating the aspirations of individuals and providing learning and training opportunities for all ages through apprenticeships.
Jill Eaton expressed her gratitude on the honour, stating, “Stepping into the Training Provider world with my Co-Director, Jo Pountney, has been a rollercoaster of a journey. I am immensely proud to receive the MBE and would like to recognise and thank everyone who has been part of that journey.”
