Retirement of STEP senior governance clerk

Carol Fagan, STEP Senior Governance Clerk, has made the decision to retire from STEP; having been a valued member of staff for over 20 years.

Previously providing excellent clerking services for Gonville, Carol has given her expert knowledge and wisdom throughout the conversion process into STEP Academy Trust.

Carol has been clerking for the Board of Trustees and various governing bodies throughout her time at STEP and has always been the consummate professional.

Carol has also been mentoring our newest governance clerks and has taken an active role in the recruitment and induction of our STEP Governors.

Mark Ducker OBE, STEP CEO has said, "Carol has been a key member of the STEP team, providing excellent support to governors and trustees. On a personal note, I am enormously grateful her loyal service over the past sixteen years, which has been so critical to my own leadership journey.”

Although Carol will be greatly missed, we are happy that her legacy will be that STEP will have a professional governance team to follow in her footsteps which will continue for many years.
