Statement by Jonathan Farnhill, Signature Chair of Trustees

26 May 2016

Signature and NRCPD have reached a new phase in their evolution. After much thought, the Board of Trustees have agreed to change the structure of the charity to enable a greater focus on the development of Signature as an awarding body and the transition of NRCPD to full independence as a regulator of communication and language professionals. As part of this process, Signature and NRCPD will become separate companies with their own dedicated leadership.
