A former Mayor of Brighton and Hove who chairs the board of governors at two local schools has won national recognition.
Jenny Barnard-Langston has been appointed a national leader for governance. She is the first in Brighton and Hove and one of just 130 across the country.
The Department for Education describes national leaders for governance as “highly effective chairs of governors, who use their skills and experience to support chairs of governors in other schools and academies”. The role includes mentoring and giving advice.
She said: “I am delighted to take up this role as national leader of governance.”
