FAB welcomes new board member

We are delighted to announce that the Federation’s Board of Directors have co-opted Candace Miller, Managing Director at SFJ Awards to the Board, until the AGM in December.

The Federation’s Chief Executive, Tom Bewick, comments:

“We’re absolutely delighted that Candace has joined the board as a non-executive director. FAB, the FE sector and the awarding industry are subject to massive change at the moment. The pandemic adds a further dynamic, as we look to emerge from the crisis with a better skilled workforce and stronger economy. Candace will also be chairing our Professional Development and Equalities Working Group, ensuring that we secure a vibrant, fairer access and more diverse industry in future.” 

Candace Miller said:

“FAB does an outstanding job on behalf of its members whose work is so critical to trust within the qualifications and awarding sector. It is, therefore, a great honour to have been co-opted onto the Board. 

“We are at time of real change in the skills ecosystem, with the new ‘Skills Bill’ making its way through parliament, and new working and learning patterns getting established as we learn to live with the impact of the pandemic. I look forward to playing an active role in the Federation’s forward journey, in particular regarding one facet of their work that is very close to my heart – the ongoing development of the professional assessment and awarding workforce within member organisations.”
