New Director Of Young People’s Learning Appointed By LSC


The Learning and Skills Council (LSC) has appointed Julia Dowd to be its new national director of young people’s learning.

Ms Dowd was previously the director of the LSC for Greater Manchester, the largest regional LSC in the country, where she was responsible for its reorganisation and refocusing.

As director of young people’s learning, Ms Dowd will be responsible for 14-19 learning and the LSC’s strategy for learners with learning difficulties and/or disabilities.

The LSC’s chief executive Mark Haysom said: “I am delighted that Julia has been appointed to this role. She has wide-ranging experience in working in young people’s learning and has been a valuable member of the LSC since its inception.”

Ms Dowd said: “Supporting the young people’s learning committee will enable me to make links for them with local non-executives to jointly work to influence and also to enhance the reputation of the sector where excellent work with young people too frequently goes unrecognised.

“As our agenda for change is implemented within our own teams I look forward to developing new ways of working to integrate the national young people’s group with the nine new regional directors of young people’s learning. Our joint support for local partnerships implementing complex change on the ground will be essential in order to enable the best possible opportunities for all young people.”
