Lorraine Bunyard
Managing Director

Hi, my name is Lorraine. I have 4 children and 9 grandchildren (hoping we may eventually get a football team)! And 3 dogs, Florence and Bert who are British Bulldogs and Boris, a French bulldog.
I started Davidson Training while my children were in school. I am proud of what I have achieved, and I feel that my strengths and passion for what I do come from my experiences in life. Life is a lesson and every day we learn something new.
I have a passion for training, and nothing gives me greater satisfaction than when a learner achieves their goals and progresses in life, whether this be personal goals or career goals. I love to inspire and nurture and see people grow from seedlings into beautiful flowers.


Sarah Collins
Training Operations Manager

Hi I am Sarah.  I am one of the longest serving members of the Davidson Training team. After starting back in 2001 as an assessor and then, after having my daughter, moving into joining the office team in 2005.   My husband is a chef (that never cooks at home) and I have two beautiful children.  After growing up on a farm makes me a farmer’s daughter and can mean that I often go home from our offices in Essex to chasing cows in my wellies, two very different lives!!
As well as enjoying spending time with my family I try to get to the gym 3 times a week and have “me” time.

Happy Young Man

Gemma Barr
Head of Apprentice Recruitment

Hi, my name is Gemma, I am office based and work with a great Team. I am mainly responsible for recruiting new apprentices and working with employers in doing so. I will more than likely be the first person you talk while seeking an apprenticeship or taking on an apprentice. I like to bring a bit of fun to work! I love working here, DTUK is like an extended family. When I’m not working, I love spending time with my family and friends. Holidays in the sun, shopping, cinema, eating out and fun days out with my beautiful children, Buddy our Labradoodle, and lovely Husband. Look forward to speaking with you soon!!


Joanne Dickens
Operational co-ordinator

Hi, my name is Joanne. I have worked at Davidson training for 10 years now. When I left school, I trained as a hairdresser and I still like to do this in my spare time. I work in the office part time as a Quality Assurer. I check all your enrolments that come in and make sure everything is completed as it should be and enter your qualifications onto the database, as well as the usual office duties.
I have been married to my lovely husband for 6 years and have 3 children who I totally adore! I grew up in Kent but now live in Sunny Essex!!
