Independent panel for review of education image

Members of the Independent Review of Education Panel announced

The Controlled Schools’ Support Council (CSSC) welcomes the appointment of the members of the independent Panel to undertake the review of education.

This is the beginning of the fundamental review of the education system in Northern Ireland. The review has the potential to radically re-shape education. Children and young people are at the centre of education provision and it is essential that the education system in Northern Ireland is the best it can be and enables every child to reach their potential.

The controlled sector is the largest education sector in Northern Ireland and CSSC looks forward to participating in the review to ensure the delivery of high quality education.

The five panel members include: Dr Keir Bloomer (Chairperson), Sir Gerry Loughran (Vice-Chairperson), Marie Lindsay, Isabel Nisbet and Robin McLoughlin OBE. Robin is Principal of Banbridge Academy and was a Director of CSSC until March 2020.
