Yiannis is currently the principal and chief executive of Barnsley College. But given the size of the new role at Bedford, handover work has already begun.

Ian said: “I am fortunate to have got to know Yiannis over the last couple of years as members of the FE Commissioner’s Principals Reference Group. He has an excellent reputation in the sector and I know he will be great to work with and will take our college group to the next level.”

Yiannis – who was invited to consult on the Government’s white paper for further education reform – was appointed following a rigorous recruitment process.
