BRACKNELL AND WOKINGHAM College is set for a shake-up as they look to implement a new structural hierachy.

The Principal and chief executive officer, Campbell Christie CBE, has left his post as of May 31, as a result of the college merging with Active Learning.

The merger takes full effect on August 1, but in preparation of this the college has taken the decision along with Active Learning to eliminate the roles taken by Mr Christie.

Instead, the merging companies will place a head of campus in charge. Paul Newman has been named as the interim head of campus.

David Cook - Chair Bracknell & Wokingham College Corporation said: "I would like to take this opportunity to thank Campbell for his hard work and dedication in pursuit of re-energising the college to such an extent that its overall Achievement, Learner Satisfaction and Employer Satisfaction results have been the best in the Thames Valley region and its recent Ofsted inspection grading was 'Good' in all areas.

"Campbell has also been an effective ambassador for the college. Highly visible in the college and in the wider community, he has helped to raise the status of the college so that it is truly at the centre of educational thought leadership with local employers, bodies of influence, parents and students."

"I, on behalf of the Corporation of Bracknell & Wokingham College, wish him well for the future."
