Why I love being an ABE area manager

Hi there,

I am Kereesa Carrington-Nunez and I hale from Trinidad and Tobago. ABE has made an invaluable contribution to my success. I opted to pursue the ABE programme after I found that enrolling directly onto a degree programme was both costly and challenging. ABE was the stark opposite of that. It proved to be a quality professional programme at a comparatively low cost with unconventional flexibility. It was perfect for juggling family commitments and a budding professional life.

The rewards

Opting to study ABE had far reaching ripple effects on my life. Following completion of ABE I became an ABE Lecturer, the skills and knowledge that I amassed put me in high demand to deliver university level programmes on an international scale. 

In July 2015 I was awarded Educator Par Excellence by the Tobago Cultural Committee and voted one of the top 10 Young Achievers of Tobago.

The successes of ABE further evolved as I became an ABE Ambassador in my country. As the Country Manager my networks mushroomed as I represented the awarding body to perspective students, alumni, colleges, accreditation agencies and numerous other stakeholders. The position awakened a deep passion in me of wanting to pass the education I had to others and it brought me closer to self actualisation. Not only did it carry intrinsic rewards but it was a paid position.

The team

Being able to work with a competent team of professionals from a global perspective with the support of  ABE's Founder Lyndon Jones made the journey even more fulfilling. The staff in the UK - Kabilan, Emma, Gill, Vanda, Stephen, Kenneth and Kerry - have been at ABE as long as I can remember.  They are most amiable, competent and above all patient and willing to share and receive ideas. What would seem the arduous task of conceptualising and implementing a globally coordinated strategy would become a learning experience that yielded immeasurable successes in Trinidad.

I am now the Regional Manager to the Caribbean for ABE, still an ABE Ambassador and even more privileged! Today I operate under the auspices of a poised visionary in our CEO Gareth Robinson and an expanding team with a contemporary flare  including Sue, Kate, Linda, Lisa and Mark among others. The collective experiences of ABE Head Office staff coupled with localised perspectives of the Area Managers makes ABE a relevant, dynamic education provider whose qualifications are adaptable to any context.

  3. I wonder why ABE is not being coming to Nigeria? We're estranged from the ABE student community. I'm pissed off!

    1. Hi Adeniyi, I am sorry to read you feel unhappy. I can assure you we value Nigeria. Next week we are publishing a blog about a successful Nigerian alumni. We have also recently employed three area managers who you are welcome to contact with your suggestions and concerns:
