LSDA successor organisation seeks first chief executive

The Learning and Skills Network, one of the successor organisations to the Learning and Skills Development Agency (LSDA), is seeking its first chief executive.

The LSDA is to evolve into two organisations – the Learning and Skills Network (LSN) and the Quality Improvement Agency for Lifelong Learning (QIA). This transition is due to take place by 1st April 2006, when the QIA and LSN will begin operations.

The LSN post is being advertised nationally. Under the new chief executive, the LSN will continue the operational and delivery work currently carried out by the LSDA, providing services and support to colleges, training providers, adult and community education, schools and other organisations in the learning and skills sector.

LSDA’s strategic and commissioning work will transfer to the Quality Improvement Agency for Lifelong Learning (QIA). Existing LSDA staff will form the core of both organisations which will start operations in April 2006.

The announcement of the LSN chief executive is expected to be made in October 2005.

Sir Geoffrey Holland, LSDA chair, says: "The Learning and Skills Development Agency has played a central role in helping to shape policy and support teachers, trainers, lecturers and managers working in further education and training over the past five years. Its successor organisation, the Learning and Skills Network, will carry on this excellent work and develop it into new areas.

"We are looking for an outstanding individual who will build on LSDA’s reputation, sustain its existing work and develop new business opportunities."
