Trainer goes bust
One of the largest independent providers of secondary teacher training insists all courses will go ahead, despite the company calling in the liquidators. Keynote Educational, which runs around 1,000 courses a year, this week reported "a serious cashflow problem" that had led to "substantial debts." Co-owner, Dr Pam Hurry, reassured course tutors that unpaid fees would be met. Jim Hurry, her husband and co-director, said the company would be wound up and a new one created, called Keynote Training, which would continue with its existing nine permanent staff and around 350 freelances.
