I am pleased to announce the re-appointment of Ann Evans as Chair of Qualifications Wales.  

Ann was originally appointed as Chair of Qualifications Wales in March 2015 for an initial term of three years and will continue as Chair for a further 18 months.

Ann brings a wealth of experience to the role.  Ann has been an independent education consultant since 2012 following four years as Chief Executive of Careers Wales Mid Glamorgan and Powys. Her earlier positions include Assistant Chief Executive of the Qualifications Curriculum and Assessment Authority for Wales. Prior to this Ann was first a school teacher followed by being a lecturer and manager in Further Education.

I attach great importance to the role of Qualifications Wales and the work of its Chair; I am delighted with this re-appointment.
