The regulator's Director of Education and Training, Dr Simon Thornton-Wood will leave the organisation on Friday, 16 September 2016.

The delivery of the BPTC and pupillage, including the BCAT, centralised assessments and transfer to the Bar (formerly under Education and Training), will be undertaken by the new Regulatory Assurance Directorate, overseen by Oliver Hanmer.
