Ms Brennan-Barrett has a wealth of experience in the sector having started her career as a secondary school teacher and then later moving into the further and higher education sector.
She said: “It is an honour to have joined Northampton College as its principal. I was delighted to be offered thisopportunity to work with such a successful college which has achieved a ‘good’ grade from Ofsted in its recent inspection. I am passionate about teaching and learning, and will continue to build upon the excellent achievements already gained. I look forward to working closely with the governors, staff, partners, local employers and the wider community.
“My aim is to empower teams within the college to achieve their full potential, so that the students can be successful in securing their best possible results and progress on to employment or further or higher education. I will be wholly focussed on supporting economic growth for Northamptonshire and on leading Northampton College to become an even brighter star.”
