He has also been involved in leading a pilot study for the Further Education Funding Council aimed at establishing the new audit framework for the student records audit and was lead partner on the forensic investigation in 2000 into Barnsley College.

‘I am absolutely delighted by the honour. Over the last ten years I have had the privilege to meet and indeed work with some of the leading educationalists in the UK,’ he said.
