Rick Holden
For his work on Education & Training

Rick's interest in, and commitment to, education and training stretches back to his PhD, completed at the University of Exeter and to his first appointment, in 1982, as Education & Training Officer for Cadbury Schweppes. One of his more dubious early responsibilities was for the company's WEEP initiative -- work experience on employers premises - and where he admits some of the young people with whom he came into contact nearly did make him cry out in desperation. He became editor of Education + Training in 1990 by which time he had joined Leeds Polytechnic's Business School. A key objective of Education + Training has been to address the transition from formal education into work. Rick has endeavoured to remain close to this critical transition by virtue of his research interests in the graduate labour market and more latterly researching the teaching of skills to young professionals.

Rick's other professional interest outside of what is now Leeds Metropolitan University is his work with the University Forum for HRD. He chaired the 2005 HRD Research and Practice Across Europe Conference and is currently Vice Chair of the Research Committee, looking after the Forum's Research Honorarium. Rick also attempts to maintain the upkeep and development of the Forum's web site.

As a life time supporter of Bradford City football club Rick knows what it is like to go through periods of adversity. Whilst difficult times have been experienced as editor of Education + Training by and large the journey has been both insightful and rewarding. His best wishes go to the new editor and editorial team for another 20 years of successful publication.

Ross Thomas
For his work on Journal of Educational Administration

Under Ross' direction the quality of articles being reviewed for JEA has improved by ensuring that submissions focus on the aims of the journal as well as encouraging high quality writing, sound methodology and clear incremental contributions to both theory and practice. In addition, Ross has supported new authors through judging the Emerald/EFMD Outstanding Doctoral Research Award for Educational Leadership and Strategy.

Ross will step down as Editor of JEA at the beginning of the of the 2012 volume which will mark the 50th Anniversary of the journal. He will take up a position on the Editorial Advisory Board.

Ross is Visiting Professorial Fellow in the Australian Centre for Educational Leadership at the University of Wollongong.
