Diocesan Chief Executive appointed to new pioneering role in education

Canon Nigel Spraggins, who has been Diocesan Chief Executive for Southwell and Nottingham since 2007, has been appointed as Director of Development and Governance with Archway Learning Trust, an expanding Nottingham based Multi Academy Trust, which has a Christian ethos and faith foundation.

Nigel will be moving on as Diocesan Chief Executive Officer in mid-November, prior to taking up his new appointment in January 2020. In the meantime, with a number of recent new appointments into the Jubilee House team, Nigel will continue to help the diocese orientate its resources towards supporting parishes in their ministry and mission of growing disciples.

Bishop Paul shared “I am immensely grateful to Nigel for the significant contribution he has made to the life of the diocese and the mission of God, especially through the different seasons of working closely with four Episcopal colleagues, Archdeacons, Clergy and Lay Leaders to enable exciting and creative developments in mission. In light of Nigel’s particular commitment to education and schools, I am delighted that he has been appointed to this new role in an innovative MAT and I know that he will bring tremendous skills as Archway expands the scope of its work beyond the diocese.”

While the process of appointing a new CEO will soon be underway, I am pleased to let you know that Maureen Cole from St Luke’s Gamston, former Diocesan Secretary in the Diocese of Derby, has agreed to be acting CEO on a part-time basis from mid-November, supporting the work of Jubilee house and the senior team.”
