Dr Lindsey Whiterod OBE, Chief Executive of Tyne Coast College (formerly South Tyneside College) CBE New Years Honours List 2018

Dr Lindsey Whiterod, OBE

Chief Executive

Dr Lindsey Whiterod OBE said after receiving notification of CBE: “It is a great honour, albeit a surprise, to be awarded a CBE,” she said. “I am thrilled that my work has been recognised in this way,”

Dr Lindsey Whiterod OBE places innovation in education and an understanding of how curriculums must be shaped to meet the needs of industry and employers as well as students, as policy priorities.

Her clear understanding of the link between education and training and the workplace to influence economic growth, was central to the rapid rise in standards at South Tyneside College, where she was Chief Executive prior to the founding of Tyne Coast College.

It was here that Dr Whiterod’s resolute and forward-thinking approach to provision ensured courses, and resulting qualifications, targeted real jobs, a policy that won the approval of many within the North East business community, as well as education inspectorate Ofsted. It also led to the college being named the best in the country and the best for overall provision of Further Education at the prestigious TES FE Awards 2017.
