Henshaws Society for the Blind has appointed a new Managing Director – Education and Training to oversee the management of its Harrogate-based college, and the Arts and Crafts Centre in Knaresborough.
Nicki Eyre joins Henshaws with an impressive background in both the charity and education sectors. As acting CEO for Action with Communities in Cumbria she played a prominent role managing initiatives to support local rural communities, and has previously worked in a number of further and adult education roles within Lincolnshire.
On her appointment Nicki said:
During the challenging economic climate, Henshaws continues to offer students with disabilities – and in particular those with visual impairments – the chance to gain skills and confidence for independent living. Our innovative and creative approaches ensure that all our students have the best possible experience, and I look forward to continuing the great work already under way throughout the area.
Henshaws College has begun work on its brand new Media and IT Centre which will be open later on in the year.
