Former Northbrook Principal Sue Dare has been awarded an MBE for her services to education in the Queen's Birthday Honours List. Sue, who has worked in Further Education in Sussex for over 35 years in a variety of roles, was Principal of Northbrook College from November 2009 until 31 March this year when it merged with City College Brighton to become Greater Brighton Metropolitan College. During her time as Principal of Northbrook, the college became England's third highest performing college in the league tables of achievement rates published by the National Data Service.
Sue said,"I am thrilled to receive this honour which recognises all of us who worked so hard to a great success over the past years, especially my fantastic colleagues and our students and apprentices. My ambition for Northbrook was that young people, adults and employers think of the College as the first and best choice for vocational education in our locality and, with the willing support of our local Adur and Worthing community, I believe we achieved this."
