“I am delighted and excited to have become the Chair of Learning with Parents”
We are pleased to announce the appointment of our new Chair of Trustees, Sally Dicketts CBE.
Sally has been a senior leader in schools and colleges for the last forty years, leading two innovative colleges – Milton Keynes (1996-2003) and Activate Learning (2003-2022). Her key interest is in creating learning organisations where people develop emotionally as well as academically. Sally is a keen advocate for vocational education and became the President of the Association of Colleges in 2020. She has also chaired and been a member of a range of local, regional and national boards.
Sally shared her enthusiasm for joining the team:
“This work is so critical to enabling social mobility and closing the learning gap to increase all student/pupil performance. Long term this will help increase the talent pool for the UK and improve social cohesion.”
Sally joins us at an exciting time of growth as we embark on new partnerships and launch the pilot of our reading programme. We look forward to working closely with Sally as we begin on this exciting new chapter for the charity.
