Advisory Assessment Panels (AAP) are chosen by ministers to assist them in their decision-making. These include a departmental official and an independent member. For competitions recruiting non-executive members of a board (apart from the Chair), the panel will usually include a representative from the public body concerned.
AAP’s perform a number of functions, including agreeing an assessment strategy with ministers, undertaking sifting, carrying out interviews in line with the advertised criteria and deciding objectively who meets the published selection criteria for the role before recommending to ministers which candidates they find appointable. It is then for the minister to decide who to appoint to the role.
The Advisory Assessment Panel for this role will be as follows.
Shelagh Legrave, Further Education Commissioner - representative of organisation.
Kirsty Evans - Director for Post-16 Regions and FE Provider Oversight, Department for Education - representative of Department for Education.
Jeff Greenidge - Director for Diversity, Association of Colleges/Education and Training Foundation - independent panel member.
Ian Pryce - Chief Executive, Bedford College Group/National Leader of Further Education - other panel member.
Thomas Reed - Head of FE Commissioner Support and Intervention, Department for Education - other panel member.
