I am delighted to say that the former head of Sky Academy, Jack Eatherley, has agreed to take up a 12 month secondment from Sky to support us as we launch Bolder Academy. He brings ten years’ experience developing educational initiatives such as Sky Academy Skills Studios and Sky Sports Living for Sport. These initiatives were set up specifically to use media and sport to develop key skills in young people. Jack will no doubt be able to add great value as Sky becomes a good neighbour.
We also received a huge number of applications for the senior leadership posts at Bolder Academy. I will be holding interviews this week. The remaining teaching posts will be advertised on the website towards the end of the month. If you know any great people who are interested make sure you let them know.
