Still no Head appointment for 'Institute'

Education have still not appointed an Executive Principal for the new amalgamated Institute - made up following the merger of the Guernsey Training Agency, the College of Further Education and the Health Studies Institute.

The Committee announced in February its new plans for non-A-Level post-16 education, and that it would be recruiting an Executive Principal for the centre.

In the middle of March, they said the application process for the senior role had closed, and that they were pleased with the response received. Deputy Matt Fallaize, President of ESC, said they were confident they would be able to "make a strong appointment well in advance of the Institute's formation on the 1 July".

But now, ESC have confirmed an appointment has still not been made. It did still assure Express of its confidence the appointment would now be made "by the 1 July", however. 

"Owing to the confidential nature of recruitment processes, the Committee does not consider it appropriate to comment further at this time," it added.

ESC have recently made a number of senior staff appointments. 

The Committee has recently been recruiting for a number of top jobs in education. It appointed the two new headteachers for the two secondary education College sites, a new Director of Education, and also last year, the Executive Headteacher for the Colleges. 

These roles went to Vicky Godley and Kieran James across the two sites, while the Director of Education role was given to Laurie Ann Baker from the UK. Liz Coffey, the former headteacher of the Grammar School, has been the Exeuctive Head for some time now.
