Moulton College is delighted to announce the appointment of Ann Turner as the college’s new Interim Principal.
Ann has nearly two decades of experience at a land-based college, having spent 12 years as Principal at Myerscough College in Preston, and seven years prior to that as their Director of Finance. She retired from her role at Myerscough in March, and now takes over for an interim period at Moulton College, after previous Principal Stephen Davies stepped down at the end of April.
Ann is already very familiar with Moulton College, serving as chair of Landex until November 2017, a collection of nearly 40 land-based colleges and universities across the United Kingdom - including Moulton and Myerscough - who aspire to excellence in their field.
She said: “I’m thrilled to be joining Moulton College as Interim Principal. Having worked with the college over the last 15 years through Landex and Cultiva, Moulton has always been a part of me. It’s not quite the retirement I was expecting, but an opportunity that I could not refuse!
“Moulton has some incredible facilities and dedicated staff across the board, and I admire the commitment to develop, improve and innovate that the college has. For example, the new Food and Drink Innovation Centre, which opens this summer recognises the growing catering industry in Northamptonshire, and the need for highly-skilled practitioners in this area.
“The college has a really unique offer, with courses ranging from equine and animal welfare through to sport and construction, and I aim to build on the foundations already in place to make Moulton College the best destination for students exploring a career in these areas, not just in Northamptonshire, but beyond as well.”
