Dr Subo Shanmuganathan steps down as interim Director of Education

The General Optical Council (GOC) has today announced that Dr Subo Shanmuganathan has stepped down from her role as Interim Director of Education, having led the GOC’s Education Strategic Review (ESR) and Continuing Education and Training (CET) review over the last year.

Following Council sign off of the ESR implementation plan and approval of a fourth director position with responsibility for leading our ongoing Education work, Subo has decided that now is the right time to move on.

GOC Chief Executive and Registrar, Lesley Longstone, said:

"I’m extremely grateful for all the work, personal energy and commitment Subo has invested in our education work during her time with us as interim and wish her well in whatever she chooses to do next."

This change takes effect right away and the GOC will be advertising the permanent post shortly.



The implementation plan for the Education Strategic Review (ESR) was approved at the GOC Council meeting on 13 November.
