Dr Justin Thacker will leave his role as the Academic Director at Cliff College in May 2019.
Justin has been on the staff at Cliff College for the last six years and in that time has played a key role in the life of the College including, in recent years, our successful application to the Office for Students and our response to the government’s apprenticeship levy.
Revd Ashley Cooper, College Principal, said, ‘we will miss Justin’s input and presence at Cliff, are grateful for his service over the past five years and wish him well in his new role.’
Cliff College is now beginning the recruitment process to appoint a new Academic Director to take the lead in the academic life of the College and to join its senior leadership team. Over the last year the College has re-emphasised its ethos to serving the church in evangelism and mission and has been strengthening its training for those in lay ministry, both nationally and internationally, through its academic programme.
Revd Ashley Cooper said, ‘this is a key appointment for the College, at this exciting and challenging time in our life, and we are looking for a strong and experienced academic to join the staff at Cliff.’
