Agency gets new leader

The Teacher Training Agency has appointed Ralph Tabberer as its new chief executive.

Mr Tabberer, who is currently leading the National Grid for Learning Division at the Department for Education and Employment, will take over from current chief executive, Anthea Millett, in February.

The Education Secretary, David Blunkett, welcomed the appointment, and thanked Ms Millett for her "hard work and dedication".

He said: "Teachers are at the heart of our drive to raise standards, and the agency will play a key part by attracting able and committed people to teaching and by improving the quality of teacher training."
