I am delighted to be joining the BAC team and thank Sheila Needham, BAC Chief Inspector, for doing such an outstanding job as Interim CEO.

The challenges facing the independent education sector are many but opportunities are increasing. BAC will continue to partner independent education and BAC will continue to be an active partner in the ongoing success of the sector.

With just over three weeks to go to the election the next few months promises to be a busy time with any new government likely to be having a view on the independent sector.
