A statement from David Hughes, AoC Chief Executive, upon the death of Her Majesty The Queen.

He said: “The whole FE sector will want to join with me in paying tribute to Her Majesty The Queen for her many years of service to our country. The news of the passing of The Queen is something which has saddened us all. For most of us working in the sector, indeed most of us alive today, it is hard to imagine times without Queen Elizabeth on the throne. The coming days will have an emotional impact on college staff and students alike and it will be important to treat each other with compassion.”
