The election of four new members to the national council of the Association for Colleges shows a balance of moderates and management hard-liners. Helen Gilchrist, a well-known moderate and principal of Nelson and Colne College swept home.

Tony Pitcher, principal of South-East Essex College, an industrial relations hard-liner, was second.

TES columnist Michael Austin, principal of Accrington and Rossendale Tertiary College, is the new chairman.
