Aspire Sussex Company Statement

The Trustees of Aspire Sussex have today issued a statement announcing that Ros Parker has resigned from her role of CEO to take up a new post and will be leaving the Company at the end of June.

Having led the Adult Education Service since 2006, including its transfer out of West Sussex County Council to establish Aspire Sussex in 2012 as an independent charity delivering adult education across Sussex, Ros has now accepted a senior role within Essex County Council. The Board of Trustees wish Ros every success as she moves back to Essex and closer to her family.

The search for a CEO to continue the work of establishing Aspire Sussex as a lead provider of adult education in Sussex will commence immediately and in the interim period they have confidently placed additional responsibilities with Judith McManus and Terry Burgess who will jointly fulfil the role of Chief Executive.
