New Director Elected at AGM

We are delighted to announce that NECTER / RCE North East has a new director, Dr Stephen Clough, Honorary Fellow in the School of Education, Durham University. Stephen was elected unanimously by all those present at our Annual General Meeting held on 17th October 2013.

Two other appointments were made at the meeting: Frances Sule (formerly Enearu) was elected Secretary of NECTER in addition to her current role as Continuing Professional Development Coordinator and Cllr Gareth Kane was elected onto the committee, both by unanimous vote. Dr Caspar Hewett, who stood down as Director after two years, agreed to remain on the committee in an advisory role.

We could not be more pleased to welcome these new members to the committee and are looking forward to an exciting future for NECTER and the RCE.October 2013
