We are delighted to announce the appointment of Professor Ted Melhuish, OBE as our Chairman at last week's AGM.

Ted is already a Trustee and now replaces Elizabeth Filkin, CBE, who has been our Acting chair for the last year.  A big thank you to Elizabeth for your support in this time.

Ted's influence at Early Years policy-making level both in the UK and overseas, in addition to his expertise in ensuring that the evidence FYT produces is solidly based and reputable, make him an ideal choice for this role.
