Yesterday, we shared on our social media that it had been confirmed that Gavin Williamson has been replaced as the Education Secretary. We know that this may create a mix emotions in the professionals, parents, carers, young people and children that we support.
It has now been announced that Williamson has been replaced by Nadhim Zahawi who has most recently been the Vaccines Minister, and previously worked as a children’s minister between 2018 and 2019.
Further changes in the Department for Education saw Nick Gibb removed as schools minister after nine years in the role.
Michelle Donnelan remains as universities minister, however, no announcement has been made about the future of Vicky Ford as children’s minister.
