08 Oct 2021

As the sad news of the death of John Callaghan, former Principal of Solihull College & University Centre was announced earlier today, Chief Executive of Association of Colleges David Hughes said:

“On behalf of Association of Colleges, and the entire FE sector, we are sending our deepest sympathy and thoughts to John Callaghan’s family at this difficult time. John was an excellent principal, his warmth and dedication to supporting students, staff and communities was inspirational and he has had an undeniable positive impact. Thousands of people’s lives are better because of him and everything he achieved throughout his career. He was a supportive and caring colleague across the West Midlands and many people have been grateful for his experience, ideas, and support. Most of all we will miss his strong and collaborative character, his passion for students, his technical expertise as well as his sense of humour. John will be sorely missed.”
