MAC­CLES­FIELD MP David Rut­ley has met with Rachel Kay, the new prin­ci­pal of Mac­cles­field Col­lege.

In their first meet­ing since she took over the £105k-a-year post from Si­mon An­drew in Au­gust, they talked about their shared am­bi­tion to in­crease ap­pren­tice­ships and work-based learn­ing.

Cheshire-born Mrs Kay is the for­mer deputy prin­ci­pal and man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of Tre­sham Col­lege of Fur­ther and Higher Ed­u­ca­tion.

She said: “It was a plea­sure to welcome David to the col­lege as I know how much of an ad­vo­cate he is of the col­lege and our suc­cess at de­vel­op­ing lo­cal skills.

“David shares our vi­sion for grow­ing ap­pren­tice­ships and work-based learn­ing and I look for­ward to work­ing with him as we con­tinue to drive Mac­cles­field Col­lege for­ward to meet the needs of learn­ers and em­ploy­ers in our com­mu­nity.”

Af­ter the meet­ing, Mr Rut­ley said: “It was great to meet Rachel and learn more about her am­bi­tions for the col­lege.

“I am very pleased to learn of her sup­port for ap­pren­tice­ships, and look for­ward to sup­port­ing the col­lege in re­al­is­ing its am­bi­tions and their ex­cit­ing plans in the months ahead.

“I wish Rachel ev­ery suc­cess in this im­por­tant po­si­tion.”
