SFJ Awards Managing Director Candace Miller has been elected to the board of the Federation of Awarding Bodies (FAB) – the collective voice of the UK’s leading awarding and end-point assessments organisations, whose members include University of the Arts London, Scottish Qualifications and The Royal Horticultural Society.

Co-chaired by Kirstie Donnelly MBE, Chief Executive at City & Guilds, and Alan Woods OBE, Chief Executive at VTCT, Candace joins the FAB board as a Non-Executive Director following a thirty-year career at the forefront of vocational education and training development in the UK.

Welcoming Candace’s election, Tom Bewick, FAB Chief Executive said: “Candace joins the board at a pivotal time for the future of vocational and technical qualifications in the UK; particularly in light of ongoing reforms to apprenticeships and the government’s skills and post-16 education bill in England.”

“Responsible for providing strategic leadership and guidance to support the work of the non-exec board and executive team, Candace’s diverse skills and experience will prove invaluable to our objectives moving forward. I’m really delighted that she is on-board.”

Commenting on her appointment Candace Miller said: “In the UK, we have a world-class qualifications and assessments sector that works hand in hand with government and employers to ensure the ongoing success of learners and industry.

“FAB is vital to keeping the lines of communication between these key stakeholders open, ensuring that high-quality qualifications and assessments, which recognise achievement, improve productivity and support social mobility, remain a national priority.

“I am delighted that my peers have chosen me to represent them on the board of FAB and I relish the opportunity to work with Tom and his team as they continue to lead positive change in the qualifications and assessment industry.”
