University Alliance comment on appointment of Professor Les Ebdon as new director of OFFA

Following the confirmation of Professor Les Ebdon being appointed the new Director of OFFA, Professor Janet Beer, Chair of University Alliance and Vice Chancellor of Oxford Brookes University said: 

“We look forward to working with Professor Les Ebdon to ensure fairness is maintained at the heart of university access. His experience within the sector and of working with Government will put him in a good position to take up this important post.

“All universities are committed to providing opportunities for those who have the ambition and ability to succeed, regardless of their background. For many, the life-changing experience of university opens up opportunities they would not otherwise have.  Alliance universities, along with the rest of the sector, will continue to work closely with OFFA to ensure we stick to our commitment.”
