WELCOME TO THE BRISTOL OF 2050
TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT THE FUTURE HOLDS
THE head of City of Bristol College is stepping down from the role after three years.
Lee Probert, who will leave at the end of May 2019, is taking up a job as principal and chief executive at York College.
Mr Probert said the decision was “difficult” but he had decided to take the opportunity to live closer to his family.
He said: “I have spent the past three years here, working with colleagues, partners and our students on making significant improvements to the college’s quality and financial performance, ensuring that communities of the city of Bristol have access to a strong college that they deserve.
“Alongside this we have continued to build on our strong links with local employers through our apprenticeship and work-based training provision and to develop a curriculum which really responds to the needs of the city.”
“I am truly going to miss people - the supportive staff, their collective energy and passion for educating both young and mature people.”
Mr Probert will be working with the college’s board on finding a replacement over the next few weeks and said he is planning to “work closely” with his successor as part of the handover.
The college has already begun its search for a new head and is expected to make the appointment by the end of February.
