We would like to offer many congratulations to Christine Gilbert, our Pilot 3 lead, on being made a Dame. This was in recognition of her outstanding services to education over many years. Her leadership has been instrumental in the development of the accountability pilots and the Project as a whole over the last 18 months.

We would also like to congratulate Christine on her appointment to the very prestigious role of Chair of the Education Endowment Foundation. She will take this role on from January 2024.
