North Shropshire College (NSC) has announced the appointment of Ian Peake as principal. Having been principal and chief executive of Herefordshire and Ludlow College since 2004, Ian has a wealth of experience within further education and has overseen successful mergers in both Herefordshire and Shropshire.
Ian Peake says, “I’m delighted and honoured that the NSC board has asked me to serve as Principal for the months leading up to the merger with Herefordshire & Ludlow College. This is a very exciting development for both partner institutions that will enable us to create a new, diverse and financially stable College to provide the very best education and training to every student.”
Chair of the NSC’s board of governors Gillian Richards comments, “The board and I are thrilled to welcome Ian to lead North Shropshire College in the coming months prior to merger. Now is absolutely the right time for Ian to join us and we are both excited and ready for the necessary work that will need to be done to ensure a successful merger which will benefit the communities of Herefordshire and Shropshire. We wish Ian every success in the future.”
