Mr Morgan, who is Chief Executive at WJEC, will take over from Derek Richardson and was already a JCQ Director.
The role of Chair of the JCQ Board rotates on a yearly-basis. Mr Richardson, Vice President and the Senior Responsible Officer at Pearson UK ended his one-year term on 31st August 2021 and will continue to serve JCQ as a Director.
Commenting on his appointment, Mr Morgan said: ‘I am delighted to have been appointed Chair of the JCQ Board. The 2022 academic year is likely to be as equally challenging as 2020/21 as we move to reinstate examinations, while the whole sector still faces challenges from the Covid-19 pandemic. We know the challenges being faced by schools and colleges and JCQ and its members will strive to provide the support and advice they need to ensure a successful examination season next summer.
‘I would like to thank Derek for his excellent contribution as Chair of the Board last year. I look forward to us all working collectively on the challenges and opportunities the sector faces in the year ahead.'
