Two ETF trustees awarded OBEs in Queen’s Birthday Honours List

The Education and Training Foundation would like to congratulate all those who have been recognised in the 2017 Queen’s Birthday Honours list for services to Further Education (FE) and training.

The deserving recipients for this year’s honours include two of the ETF’s trustees Paul Mullins, Chair of the Education and Training Foundation for services to business and the economy, and Nigel Leigh, Principal and Chief Executive of Stephenson College for services to Further Education and apprenticeships.

David Russell, ETF Chief Executive, said today:

“Further Education and training changes lives and underpins the country’s economic success, both now and in the future. I congratulate those honoured and all who have served the sector in a wide variety of organisations, in executive and non-executive roles.

The breadth of those recognised shows the diversity of the sector not only in terms of the types of organisations but also in the differing contributions those who are honoured make. It is excellent to see them formally recognised and their contributions celebrated.”
