Meet the Team

Michelle Chatterley

Head of CREATE Education Project Ltd

I have been with the group for 10 years and with CREATE Education since its birth!  It is my 3rd baby!  I was the first employee working with Paul and Alex to grow the business and I am proud of what we have achieved and the impact we have had on young people! 

At CREATE Education, we pride ourselves on customer service! I’m always available by phone or email to ensure that all of our customers get the best support and assistance they need. This can be technical support, product information, training and resource enquiries.  I roll my sleeves up and get involved, processing orders, chasing invoices, whatever is needed.  If I don’t have the answer myself, I will find it and provide the best support available via our extended group of companies and teams.

I took a qualification in Business Management and went on to a role at Enterprise Rent-a Car through the graduate programme moving on to varied regional roles.  This gave me a good insight into how a large scale business operates.  I learned the process of managing expectations, customer service and putting people first.  Looking after our customers and employees brings success and a positive work environment. 

The opportunity to inspire young people and make a difference in the UK education system is what drew me to CREATE Education and its what still makes me tick! I’m known for being emotional and have cried on many occasions! When I see and hear the feedback we get from the pupils and teachers we work with…that’s it.

My biggest WOW moment at CREATE Education, well…there’s been several! It’s such an amazing and interesting sector to work in! 

I could refer to spending the night on the first ever sleepover in the Science Museum in London or visiting Westminster Abbey as a guest to celebrate our appointment as a partner for Innovation in Education…but honestly I much prefer my time sat listening to the pupils and teachers on the Inspiring Lancashire Programme present to us at the BAE Systems ASK Centre. Our founder would say ‘goosebumps’, I just cry!

In the future, I’m looking forward to replicating what we have done to give access and inspiration to more young people…and taking CREATE Education global.

My passion for what we do is only second to our founders!  And I love working with our community! We have a vast network of Ambassadors and manufacturing experts whose knowledge of Additive Manufacturing and education is immense! So, get in touch with me if you need to be connected to the network of people we work with, our Ambassadors, our Manufacturing experts and our knowledgeable educators! I’ll always try to find the routes to help your ideas come to fruition.
