Academy chain trustee David Hoare appointed as new Ofsted chair

July 31, 2014 2:00 pm

The Government has announced businessman and academy chain trustee David Hoare as the new chair of Ofsted. Hoare, who has over 30 years’ business experience with companies including DX group and Virgin Express, had been a trustee of the Academies Enterprise Trust (AET) academy chain since January. Education Secretary Nicky Morgan said he has “crucial” experience in leadership and governance.

Hoare will take up his new post in September.

The National Union of Teachers said the appointment suggested “a politicisation of school inspection” which could “further widen the credibility gap between Ofsted and schools”.
