Institute for Apprenticeships announces new senior appointments.

‘Two senior appointments have been announced for the Institute for Apprenticeships — a day after Association of Employment and Learning Providers boss Mark Dawe complained to MPs about lack of leadership at the new policing body.

The Department for Business Innovation and Skills (BIS) revealed this morning that former Barclays chief executive Anthony Jenkins had been appointed as shadow chair.

It was also announced that former managing director for Trade at UK Trade & Investment Nicola Bolton had been installed as shadow chief operating officer.

This comes after Mr Dawe spoke out yesterday, during a House of Commons sub-committee hearing on education skills and the economy, complaining: “Every time there’s a difficult question [about apprenticeships], we’re told the institute will resolve it – and they haven’t got a board, or a management team or staff yet, as far as I can tell.”’ – FE Week
