Peter Roberts CBE
19th June 2019
Responding to the announcement that Peter Roberts CBE passed away on 31 December, Martin Doel, AoC Chief Executive, said: 'Peter's untimely death comes as a great shock to everyone in the college sector. His passion and hard work on behalf of colleges was well-known to us all. This was exemplified only a few months ago when he galvanised principals and chairs into writing an open letter to the Prime Minister in advance of the spending review and which made a real difference to the final result. He will be sadly missed.' John Widdowson, AoC President, said: 'I knew Peter for many years and was honoured to call him a friend. He was someone whom fellow principals held in high regard for his achievements in various colleges and in his more recent leadership roles for the sector. Peter will be a great loss to FE. We are thinking of his family at this terribly difficult time'.
