The Daily Post (p7) carries an interview with Chris Hilton who will head up a restructured department, education and lifelong learning service.
Mr Hilton, 44, says a key issue will be improving school buildings. He also plans to improve communications and trust between education professionals, Ofsted and the government to help drive up standards.
He accepts a radical shake-up is needed after a highly critical Oftsed report.
'It is all part and parcel of helping rebuild confidence in the council as a whole and not just the education directorate.'
New chief executive David Henshaw, who only started work this week, is reducing Liverpool directorates from eight to five. It will not be known until next week if Mr Hilton's brief will include more than education.
