Prof Les Ebdon, CBE

director of fair access to higher education office of fair access

Les Ebdon is the director of fair access to higher education at the independent, non-governmental Office of Fair Access, which strives to advance fair access to education. Following the introduction of higher tuition fees in 2006-2007, the Office has been instrumental in promoting the accessibility of education to those under-represented groups, particularly those from low-income backgrounds. According to Ebdon, “I was fortunate to be inspired by many great teachers, who persuaded me that a lad like me, from a corporation estate, could aspire and achieve, and helped me develop me love of practical chemistry. Higher education gave me so much...and that’s why I’ve dedicated my later career to putting something back into higher education for others.”
