BBC Academy appoints first Head of Editorial Standards

Su Pennington has been appointed to the new role of Head of Editorial Standards, BBC Academy.

Reporting to Anne Morrison, Director BBC Academy, Su will be responsible for integrating editorial standards training into all relevant parts of the BBC Academy portfolio and for ensuring there is a framework enabling everyone working for the BBC, including freelancers and independent producers working on BBC commissions, to receive the appropriate editorial standards training.

Su will join the BBC Academy for one year in January from BBC Editorial Policy, where she is currently Head of Editorial Policy, Factual.

Having joined the BBC as a journalist, Su worked as a news and education correspondent and on a range of high profile programmes, including The Today Programme, Newsnight and Panorama, before joining Editorial Policy.

Commenting on her appointment, Anne Morrison said: "Su's editorial judgement is second to none. It is a great coup for the BBC Academy to attract someone of Su's outstanding reputation and experience to such a crucial role, leading Editorial Standards training for the benefit of the BBC and the wider industry."

Su added: "I am absolutely thrilled to be joining the BBC Academy for a year. I have always been passionate about getting people the help and support they need to produce output that meets the highest of editorial standards.
