Kirsty Williams, Cabinet Secretary for Education
I promised back in December to provide further updates on the National Academy for Educational Leadership, and on opportunities for the education sector to be actively engaged in the development of the Academy.
I am pleased to say that we are now advertising for the board of the Academy, and are seeking a Chair and other non-executive Board Members. This will be a small, agile Board, recruited on the basis of their skills, and they will have a critical role in both supporting the CEO once appointed, and ensuring the effective governance of the Academy.
The application period will be from today until 11 February, with the Chair and Board to be in place by early May following a public appointments process.
