David Headington head shot

David Headington

Acting Regional Coordinator
“There are no guarantees in this life but I firmly believe that persistence and those that keep on trying are those that prevail. We only fail when we give up. Like Winston Churchill once said, “…we shall never, never, never give up”! “
David Headington
David began his career in legal practice, providing legal defence in criminal courts, working alongside barristers in the Crown Courts and within the civil litigation department. This gave David a strong foundation where he was able to provide recourse for people where there was a perceived injustice. David then moved on to teaching and worked in the training arena, where he delivered vocational qualifications and assessed competency in the workplace. He delivered Customer Service and Business administration qualifications from the awarding body Oxford Cambridge and the Royal Society of Arts, which involved the improvement of literacy and numeracy in the students that were not in employment or further education. David joined EPIC Assist in early 2017 and describes himself as a kind person who has a lot of time for people who ask for help and advice on making improvements in their own personal journey David is skilled in writing and speaking on behalf of others when given clear instructions on what is the desired outcome.
