Boss to take youth in a new direction

13th July 2001 at 01:00
THE Government is to appoint a new director general for youth to give more punch to an area of increasing importance.

The new board member, joining five other directors, will focus on youth, 14-19 education and training, and Connexions, the mentoring service.

David Normington, permanent secretary at the Department for Education and Skills, has told staff that the postholder will relieve the pressures on the director general of lifelong learning, as the focus on higher education and adult learning and skills grows.

Nick Stuart, who currently has responsibility for lifelong learning, retires in early September, and the department is looking for his successor. The post is being advertised at pound;100,000 or more for an exceptional candidate.
