Robin has been appointed the Chair of the Board at Barnfield College.

This involves providing leadership to a previously failing high profile ‘Beacon’ Further Education College in ‘special measures’ of nearly 10,000 students following receipt of Notices to Improve and deficit budgets. Role included appointing entire Senior Management Team, implementing new governance structures, working with the executive to identify business strategies, budget setting, resource planning and an £80m relocation programme. Successful exit of special measures and improvement out of an ‘inadequate’ Ofsted rating. “Robin has been an inspiration… clear professional people skills and high intellect with seasoned skill and authenticity, in a manner to engage and motivate.”
