Capital City College Group has welcomed the appointment of Damian Hinds to the role of Education Secretary, and urges him to engage with the FE sector.
Andy Wilson, Chief Executive of the Capital City College Group said: “While we are sorry to see Justine Greening leave the vital role of Education Secretary after only 18 months in the job, we look forward to working with Damian Hinds as he gets his teeth into his new brief. As one of the country’s leading college groups, we know that Further Education can help bridge the gap in attainment between pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds and those from more affluent backgrounds.

We hope he will also maintain Justine Greening’s commitment to expanding technical education.
