BICTON College this week announced it has appointed an interim principal.

Louise Twigg has more than 25 years in vocational training and has temporarily stepped into the position held by Peter Sadler before he resigned at the end of 2007.

Bicton last year announced it was searching for a 'specialist' leader with excellent credentials to lead the college into the future.

Chairman of governors John Lee said the acting principal had a farming background, a degree in agriculture and was a chartered biologist.

"Her depth and range of experience in research, in land-based and general further education colleges, in the inspectorate, planning and funding organisations, and in the commercial sector will be invaluable to us as we strive to meet the challenges of improving the skills of young people and adults to ensure a world-class competitive workforce," said Mr Lee.

Former principal Peter Sadler was known at the college for turning around the land-based educational establishment and making it a success story.

He led the establishment from 2003 through what was deemed to be a 'difficult but successful period'.

When Mr Sadler's resignation was announced, Mr Lee said Bicton was striving to become the college of the environment and needed a specialist leader with excellent credentials in that field.
