Mandeep Gill will take over the role in September following the resignation of Eddie Playfair who will become a senior policy manager at the Association of Colleges.

Mandeep, a trained chartered accountant, is currently vice principal at Suffolk New College and has a record of raising educational standards and improving Ofsted inspection grades

He said: “Having lived in east London, I am very proud to be returning to the area to join NewVIc.

“I am determined to ensure NewVIc is recognised as an ‘outstanding’ college that supports both students and the Newham community in all aspects of their lives.

“We need to help our students, staff and community to recognise that they all have the ability to fulfil their dreams.”

Gail May, chair of governors, added: “We have ambitious goals for the college and we look forward to utilising the skills and experience Mandeep brings as we continue to build our successful learning community.”
