College welcomes interim principal
11:00am Saturday 2nd March 2013 in News
SOUTH Worcestershire College has welcomed a new principal.
Viv Gillespie has taken over the role on an interim basis following the departure of Michael O’Brien last month after four years.
The college has bases in Evesham and Malvern as well as various outreach locations.
The mum-of-five is the former interim principal at Northumberland College said: “I am delighted. The college is local to me and I know the area well, having lived in Worcestershire and the Midlands for many years.
“While there will be a strong focus on developing teaching and learning excellence and its management, I am keen to keep the college moving forward and so will be working to ensure that South Worcestershire College develops in a way that is relevant to local and regional needs by refreshing our offer.”
Bryan McGinity, chairman of governors at South Worcestershire College, said he was pleased she had joined the college at an exciting time.
Mr McGinity also wished former principal Mr O’Brien all the best in the future: “We wish him and his family well in their future plans.”
