Recognition for FE and skills in New Year’s Honours list

6th January 2015

David Hughes, NIACE Chief Executive, said:

“It’s pleasing, once again, to see further education and skills being recognised in the 2015 New Year’s Honours list, helping to highlight the many personal, social and economic benefits it brings. I’m particularly pleased that Dawn Ward, Principal and Chief Executive at Burton and South Derbyshire College, received her well deserved OBE. As Chair of NIACE’s FE Advisory Group, Dawn also works tirelessly to highlight and tackle inequalities in learning and empower individuals from under-represented groups to take control of their lives and realise their potential.”
