Meet The Team


Deputy Director

Chloe Mills


Chloe graduated from the University of Southampton in 2009 and simultaneously joined The Life Skills Company to run the South Central Area. She has developed The Life Skills Company in this part of the country for over a decade, driven by a belief that building students’ self-esteem, confidence and motivation can lead them to success both inside school and out. Outside of work, Chloe holds various voluntary committee positions for a Scout group and local PTAs and she is a member of the governing body for a primary school. She has three young sons who have given her an even stronger desire to provide young people with opportunities to learn, succeed and be confident in themselves. Her favourite quote is "Life is not about finding yourself, life is about creating yourself" George Bernard Shaw.
