Much mistaken

7th October 2005 at 01:00
Carol Adams, the chief executive of the General Teaching Council for England, is not and never has been an employee of the Department for Education and Skills. Philip Delnon's claim (Letters, TES, September 30) is quite simply wrong.

Furthermore, the link he makes to the Council's alleged lack of independence is entirely spurious. In fact, Carol is a former secondary school teacher who later worked as a chief education officer in Wolverhampton and Shropshire for 10 years.

She responded to an open recruitment advertisement for the GTC through a rigorous and competitive process.
