8th September 2006 at 01:00
The first chief executive of the England's General Teaching Council is to stand down after seven years.

Carol Adams (right), who was appointed a year before the council launched in 2000, said she had enjoyed the job but hoped to concentrate more on her equalities work, which includes acting as a commissioner with the Commission for Racial Equality.

The 58-year-old, who was previously a history teacher and chief education officer for Shropshire and Wolverhampton, will leave the council in October.
