The STRB provides independent advice to the government on pay and conditions for teachers and school leaders in England and Wales. The Department for Education will shortly announce the details of the process to appoint a new chair.
Secretary of State for Education Michael Gove said:
Dame Patricia has been an outstanding chair of the STRB, and I sincerely thank her for all her hard work over the past 2 years. I wish her the very best in her new role at Ofcom, which I know will benefit hugely from her very considerable talents.
