Grant leaves Hodder Education for Prospects

Rachel Grant, formerly publisher at Hodder Education, is joining Prospects Education as head of awards and resources development.

Grant started her new role on Tuesday (5th January), joining director of education Andrew Thraves’s team in order to research, commission and develop new awards, resources and services for schools and colleges.

Grant said: "I am looking forward to playing a key role in the development of Prospects Education’s new resources for schools and colleges, at home and overseas. It is very clear that there is a significant market for resources which provide schools with schemes of work in areas that traditionally might have been considered outside of the curriculum, but are increasingly central to where government wants schools to go and under Ofsted’s spotlight (careers advice and guidance, soft skills development, employability skills, etc)."

She added: "Even better is that the schemes of work will come with assessment and accreditation, so that a school can easily demonstrate school improvement not only to the inspectorate but also to its chief stakeholders."
