A former student from Wellington School has been awarded an MBE in the 2016 New Year Honours List.
Paul Chubb, who left the School in 1969, has been awarded for services to career education and guidance.
Paul was, until recently, executive director of Careers England and still retains strong links with quality assurance of career education and guidance in schools through his role as Director for the Quality in Careers Standard. He is currently Chairman of Governors at The Dales School, Morton-on-Swale.
“I’m absolutely thrilled to receive the MBE, which I feel is as much a celebration of the work carried nationally to promote quality assured career education & guidance for England’s school and college students”, commented Paul. “My passion has always been quality assurance in education. What I love about quality assurance is that you have external experts in their fields who know what they are looking for and our job is to make life for all of our students the very best it can be.”
Headmaster of Wellington School, Henry Price, commented: “I would like to add my congratulations to Paul on being awarded an MBE. As another busy term of careers events begins, including the Careers Fair on 10 February 2016, it is wonderful to see an alumnus of Wellington honoured for his work in this vital area of school life. “
