Muscat: Pearson Online Academy UK Global, is delighted to announce the appointment of Jo Vigneron to the role of Founding Principal, for its inaugural September term.

Jo’s educational career has encompassed key leadership positions, teacher and lecturer roles across the globe.

Sharing her views for the new school, Jo said, “We have access to some of the most innovative technology available, and our teachers are experts in their fields, with superb pedagogical skills. As educators who’ve worked through the last 18 months of change and developments in the sector, gone is a perception that education is limited by location. Now the lid has lifted, it is for us to meet the challenges posed to us. Our young people today are more connected than ever. It is for us as educators to facilitate meaningful links and access to learning opportunities globally. Supported by Pearson and all their expertise, a team of wonderful teachers and a school full of amazing students. I have absolutely no doubt that we have the winning formula and I look forward to all the adventures that lie ahead.”
