Tribute to Gavin Thomas MBE

ColegauCymru was saddened to learn of the recent passing of Gavin Thomas MBE. 

Gavin began his career teaching in further and higher education, and secondary schools in England and Wales. For 20 years he was an Estyn HM Inspector and for 10 years the Senior Inspector for post-16 education and training in Wales. Gavin latterly worked as a part-time consultant in education and training with ColegauCymru and other organisations. In 2012 he received an MBE for services to education and training in Wales. 

We send our sincerest condolences to Gavin’s family and friends at this difficult time and recognise the substantial role he played in education in Wales.
