Chief Exec Tim Ward named an FE Week 'Mover and Shaker'!

TSNLA's new Chief Executive has featured in the May 1st edition of FE Week, in their column devoted to the sector's 'Movers and Shakers'.

The article says:

Tim Ward has been appointed chief executive of the Third Sector National Learning Alliance. The TSNLA supports voluntary, community and social enterprise learning providers and plays a role on the national stage in shaping wider education policies.

Mr Ward, who was a founding member of the TSNLA, is moving from his current position as chief executive of Learning Curve Group – a charity focused on education and skills for the most disadvantaged learners – where he has worked since 1999. In 2015, he was awarded a fellowship grant from the Further Education Trust for Leadership, which he used to explore the challenges of leadership among third sector providers. “I believe strongly in the critical contribution the VCSE sector plays in skills and learning,” he said. “I am delighted to be given the opportunity to help the VCSE sector to continue to play its part in a fast-changing skills policy environment, including the move to more local control of learning and skills.”

Don Hayes, who chairs the TSNLA, said: “This role is more critical than ever with the need to ensure that all have the opportunities, motivation and skills to contribute to the economy post-Brexit.”
