The chairman and senior partner of Flint Bishop has been named as the new chair of governors at Derby College Group.

Andrew Cochrane, who has been a governor at DCG since 2019, takes over the position from former headteacher Phil Dover.

Andrew, who also serves as Deputy Lieutenant of Derbyshire and Under Sheriff of Derbyshire, said: “Derby College Group is a significant community asset, and its continued good performance is key to providing young people with the tools they need to find secure, well-paid jobs.

“I am committed to ensuring that DCG continues to meet the skills requirements of the local economy and therefore, by doing so, delivers secure and well-paid employment opportunities for the young people in our area.

“Furthermore, with economic clouds gathering, the potential impact on the jobs market means that colleges such as ours will have an increasingly important role in re-skilling people for new careers.”
