From education to employment

Penny Petch appointed IfL president

Chelmsford College’s Penny Petch has been appointed president of the Institute for Learning (IfL), the professional body for teachers and trainers.

Ms Petch, head of teaching and learning development at the Essex-based FE college, will replace Beatrix Groves who will leave on 10 October 2013 after two years with IfL.

“I deeply value the existence of a professional body for the Further Education and skills sector, and wish to make a meaningful contribution to IfL as a driving force in the post-regulation era,” she said.

“This will include sharing my experience of successful strategies to improve teaching and learning; helping to raise the profile of teachers, trainers and assessors in this sector; and raising awareness of the need for teaching qualifications and professional development.”
