Welcome back to the new school year! I hope you have had the lovely, restful break you all deserve and that you are starting back fresh and ready to tackle a new year. Your students are so lucky to have such passionate educators and I hope you were able to celebrate their successes this summer.
For those of you I have not yet met, I would like to introduce myself as the new Subject Advisor for Art, Design and Media. I joined Pearson this summer after 17 years of teaching and leading creative subjects in the UK and I am a strong advocate for the arts and media in education. I am looking forward to working with you and supporting your centres this year as we continue to develop and improve our qualifications for the benefit of learners and educators.
