New Director of People and Governance

We are pleased to announce David Norton has joined the Vantage leadership team as our Director of People and Governance. David is leading strategically on all people and governance related aspects of the trust as we continue to develop our strategic aims and workplace policies. He is working closely with our talented HR team, as well as the Board of Trustees, Headteachers, LABs and the central team to ensure our entire workforce is supported, enabled, and empowered to be their best.

David said, ‘Since commencing my new role as Director of People and Governance, time has flown by. I’ve received a fantastic welcome from colleagues across the Trust and immense support from the HR team. Regular meetings with our HR Manager, Lesley Tait, have helped me understand our current systems and the team’s dedication to make changes.

My priority has been visiting our schools and learning about their work. Despite the fast pace, I’m confident we can achieve great things. I’ve also begun building connections with colleagues in other Trusts and key stakeholders to share best practices. I’m excited to work together to provide the best outcomes for our students and staff.’

Jill Albertina, CEO commented, With David’s extensive HR and school expertise, we anticipate a substantial impact across our trust, reinforcing our core pillars of ‘Great Schools,’ ‘Great People,’ and ‘Great Communities.’ We eagerly anticipate furthering our mission of fostering exceptional schools and wish him every success in his new role
