Council Chair - John Graystone
I have previously held posts as chief executive of ColegauCymru, representing further education institutions in Wales, and for a period I was interim director of NIACE Cymru, the voice of adult learning in Wales.

I have developed policy on adult learning for the TUC and the Association of Metropolitan Authorities, and in addition I have undertaken voluntary roles as an adult literacy tutor and a residential social worker.

Currently, I am a governor of two colleges and serve on a university’s audit committee, and I’m executive chair of Agored Cymru, the Welsh awarding body. I also sit on the membership body of Welsh Water.

I’ve served on numerous national education committees in Wales and published widely, and was recently honoured to receive a TES lifetime achievement award for post-16 education.
