Nusrat Faizullah will take over from Ty Goddard
The British Council for School Environments has appointed Nusrat Faizullah its new chief executive.
Faizullah will take over from the organisation’s founder Ty Goddard, who announced his intention to step down at a June board meeting.
She joins the British Council for School Environments (BCSE) from the Studio Schools Trust, where she was development manager, setting up a national network of studio schools to pioneer new approaches to education for 14 to 19-year-olds.
Her earlier career was spent at think tank the Young Foundation and she was an early member of the Teach First scheme, through which she spent two years in an east London school.
Rachel Jones, chair of the BCSE, said of the appointment: “We’re delighted that Nusrat is joining the BCSE. This is a pivotal time for the design and construction of school buildings. Her wealth of knowledge and experience in the education field will be vital to the BCSE’s future.”
Faizullah, who will take up her post in mid-September, said: “I look forward to leading the next phase of the BCSE’s work and strengthening the voice of all those affected by the design and construction of schools.”
