CEO Retirement Announcement

Shaun Reason

The Association for Science Education’s Chief Executive has announced that he will retire at the end of August 2019. Since 2014, Shaun has led the Association through a period of change so that ASE continues to represent science educators from the grass roots and is in a position to flourish and to go on to even greater things in the future.

In a statement issued today, Shaun writes,

 “At today’s staff meeting in Hatfield I announced that I will be retiring from 31st August 2019.

By that time I will have been the Chief Executive for over 5 years. ASE is strong both educationally, as well as financially, and is poised for further growth and development over the next 5 years with dedicated trustees, staff, committee members and volunteers. It is the right time for me to pass on the baton.

I am enormously proud of our ASE community who have taken the changes we have made over the years in their stride. It has been a pleasure to work with so many dedicated individuals; the commitment and professionalism of all our trustees, staff, committees and volunteers is exemplary.

For the next 5 months, it will of course remain business as usual and I intend to remain as active as ever in promoting ASE and partnerships.

I thank you all for your continued support and for your commitment and dedication to ASE.”

The Trustees now wish to appoint a Chief Executive Officer as a successor to Shaun.

An application pack will be available and downloadable here. The closing date for applications: 12.00 noon on Tuesday 23rd April 2019. Interviews for this post will be held at ASE Headquarters in Hatfield on 8th May 2019.
