I am pleased to confirm that the new Head of the School of Education will be Professor Olwen McNamara.
Many of you will already know Olwen as Professor of Teacher Education and Director of PGR within the School and I hope you will join me in welcoming her to this new role. Olwen will take up her position from 1 August.
Professor Mel West is our longest-serving Head of School and has been in his current role since 2004. Before the creation of The University of Manchester he held the post of Dean of the Faculty of Education. I would like to thank Mel for his hard work throughout his time as Head of School and wish him well in the future.
Vice-President and Dean of the Faculty of Humanities
