Right people are in charge of UTC plans
4:17pm Wednesday 28th August 2013 in Postbag
LAST week I received an email from Gordon Aitkin to inform potential parents of the delay to plans to open the UTC.
It is a setback (and my heart goes out to those pupils who will now have to start two years later than originally thought), but hopefully one that will allow for an even stronger start for the college.
The hard work put in to date by Mr Aitkin and those who are working with him has been very much appreciated and is made no less significant by a delay that was out of the control of those in charge.
The courtesy of an email before the press announcement was very thoughtful and further convinced me that the correct people are in charge.
The important thing is that Wiltshire will have this facility, which will fill a gap in our educational system for children who would thrive on a practical education.
And, once opened, hopefully it will run for so many years into the future and influence so many lives that a one-year delay will pale into insignificance.
