Scotland's Colleges, the new body representing the further education sector, is to be headed by an economic development specialist as its first chief executive. Chris Travis, 49, (above) who heads Enterprise North East Trust in Aberdeen, beat off insider competition, including a senior government official and an FE principal, to land the job, which he will take up in early December.
