Chief Executive, Sixth Form Colleges Association
After a long career in secondary schools, Bill spent ten years as a Director at SSAT, leading its work on the academies programmes, identifying and brokering the support to meet the individual and collective needs of vulnerable schools and their sponsors, including through significant DfE contracts.
In 2016, Bill took up the position of Chief Executive of the Sixth Form Colleges Association which sets out to represent, promote and support all dedicated 16-19 providers and which is the voice of sixth form education.
Since leaving the teaching profession, Bill has been occupied with government policy initiatives and developments, lobbying for the best solutions, considering their implications for schools and colleges, particularly in the context of curriculum, assessments, qualifications and accountability, and with building the size, reach and influence of the membership network.
Bill has published a French text book and a number of titles about big issues in education. Bill also sits on a number of boards and two Multi Academy Trusts.
