Business development

ASCL is pleased to announce that Jenny Jones will take on the new post of business development manager at the beginning of April. Jenny had been conference manager and many members will recognise her face from annual conference and other events.

In her new role, she will review existing partnership arrangements and develop new ones with commercial and not-for-profit companies. While this has been happening already on an ad hoc basis, with more companies wanting to work with ASCL, the time was right to create a dedicated post.

Members will get added value through discounts and additional services, and ASCL will be able to maximise sponsorship revenue in order to keep subscriptions down.

Jenny will continue to oversee the annual conference as well, but all other events, including the autumn information conferences, will come together with the one-day seminars and consultancy under MAPS Manager Barbi Rai and her team.

Ted Wragg memorial
Following the death of Ted Wragg earlier this year, a memorial fund has been established to commemorate his life and work.

Administered by a charitable trust, the proceeds will be devoted to providing greater educational opportunities for disadvantaged young people in Sheffield, Ted's native city. The fund is supported by The Institute of Education, Education Guardian, the TES, the Teaching Awards Trust, Teachers' TV, BERA and the New Vision Group.

Should you wish to support the fund, cheques can be made payable to The Ted Wragg Fund and sent to John Bidley, Access and Inclusion, Howden House, 1 Union Street, Sheffield, S1 2SH.
