Wey Education plc (LON:WEY), the education services group providing online independent education for students in the UK and overseas, announced today the establishment of an Academic Advisory Board (“AAB”). The AAB will consist of a number of senior individuals across the educational world who have wide experience of modern best practice.
The AAB’s main focus is to ensure that the company’s educational standards and operating methods are appropriate, challenging and reflect good practice with a focus on achieving quality outcomes for students and teachers alike.
The AAB is expected to meet a minimum of four times per year. The initial Chair will be Dame Erica Pienaar, a non-executive director of the Company and she is joined as a board member by Dr Elizabeth Sidwell CBE, the former Schools’ Commissioner for England. Additional appointments are expected in due course. Further information on the individual members are included below.
David Massie, Chairman of Wey Education Plc commented, “The establishment of the AAB allows the Group to be provided with independent insight and guidance as to how our schools can deliver teaching to all our students in today’s changing environment effectively whist maintaining high educational standards. While we operate commercially, we are committed to providing students with the very best education and the establishment of the AAB recognises our commitment to quality.”
