Principal of North Hertfordshire College to retire
(27th October 2004)
The Governors of North Hertfordshire College today announce with regret the intention of the Principal to retire from his post in July 2005.
Roger Gochin has served for over 14 years as a successful and inspirational Principal, not only for the College but also for education in the community.
The College has been transformed in that period and the Governors are looking to appoint a new Principal to continue the work that Roger has started. During his tenure, the College has developed landmark buildings in Letchworth Garden City and Stevenage and Roger has overseen the transformation of teaching and learning at the College, including an IT system which is the envy of the FE sector, and significantly changed the courses on offer to reflect the changing needs of the community.
Roger has worked tirelessly to promote education and training in Hertfordshire. He has served on numerous Boards and Committees, ensuring good links have been maintained between education, local Councils, voluntary and community groups, and industry.
Roger says “North Hertfordshire College is an excellent college, of which the community can be proud, with dedicated and committed staff. I am proud of what we have achieved in the past 14 years and I now want to devote the rest of my working life to wider community service where my experience and energy can be put to good use”.
