We are delighted that Rama Venchard, Chair of Trustees of STEP Academy Trust, has been awarded an MBE in the New Year’s Honours List 2023 for services to education.
A valued member of the Board, Rama Venchard has volunteered as a STEP Trustee and has provided consultancy services for the Board for several years.
Upon hearing the news, Mr Venchard said: “I am absolutely thrilled to be recognised in this way and can only thank the brilliant colleagues with whom I have worked throughout my career as this would not have happened without them. It was a shock to be nominated, but I feel very honoured to have received the MBE. I’ve had many, many messages of congratulations! I’m so humbled by the award and by everyone’s reaction to it.”
