Following recent discussions about strategic issues within the Nuffield Foundation, Sharon Witherspoon has decided to step down as its Director. The Foundation Chairman, Professor David Rhind, warmly praised Sharon’s many contributions to the Foundation throughout her 19 years there; a summary of these contributions and achievements is annexed. The decision is entirely amicable on both sides.

The Director of Education at the Foundation, Josh Hillman, has taken over as Acting Director. The Nuffield Foundation Trustees thank Sharon for her work and welcome Josh to his new role.
