Cambridge MP Congratulates FE Education Leader Dr Ros Morpeth

Cambridge MP Julian Huppert has congratulated Dr Ros Morpeth, Chief Executive of the city’s National Extension College after she was named Further Education Leader of the Year for her “tenacity and inspirational leadership”.

Dr Morpeth won the Times Education Supplement award after she came out of retirement to rescue the NEC from closure eight years ago.

Julian said: “I can’t think of anyone who deserves this award more than Ros. She has truly been an inspiration as an outstanding leader and I send her my best wishes.

“She has done a fantastic job, putting the students first many of whom without her perseverance and diligence may not have been able to complete their studies or achieve their grades.

“The NEC plays an important part in education both in Cambridge and nationally and, if it were not for Ros’ foresight and expertise we may have lost it forever. I am delighted to see her receive the recognition she deserves for her selfless efforts.”
