Education and employment secretary Gillian Shephard today announced the reappointments and new appointments of members to the governing body of the Centre for Information on Language Teaching and Research (CILT).

The reappointments are:

Barry Jones, head of modern languages, Homerton College, Cambridge, and Richard Townsend, principal, Dunraven Upper School, Lambeth, south London.

The new appointments are: Janet Halliday, general education adviser in modern foreign languages, Harlow LBC, and Hilary Footitt, head of languages, University of Westminster.

Each appointment will be for a term of three years from June 1996.

CILT is a non-departmental public body which was set up as a charitable trust in 1966. Its aims are to promote greater national capability in languages and, in particular, to provide professional support for teachers of languages. It will receive grant-in-aid from central government of £940,000 this financial year.
