New CES Director: Paul Barber
Blogged by James Preece on 13th December 2012
Paul Barber has been appointed director of the Catholic Education Service.
One of the criteria for the post is that he "Possess highly developed interpersonal and communication skills, and the ability to win respect and trust at all levels."
Then they appoint Paul Barber? Are they serious?
I can't think of anybody who has lost more trust and respect than Paul Barber. Let's just say there's a reason the Catholic Herald have not allowed comments on this particular item of news. I don't blame them.
Perhaps in future one of the criteria for the post should be "the Catholic press will need to be able to announce the appointment without gagging the general public".
