Keith Wymer: Educationalist whose influence was felt in Russia, Africa, the Caribbean and the United States

Keith Wymer was Principal of a Further Education College for almost 30 years. Born in Norfolk, he gained his degree in English from Leeds University. A brief episode of school teaching was followed by 39 years in post-16 education in Bilston, Wolverhampton. He became the first Head of Department of Liberal Studies in the small vocational Bilston College of FE. He built up the department into a large one which encouraged working class students and adults to realise their further and higher education potential. He then became the first Principal of Bilston Sixth Form College and subsequently was appointed Principal of the merged FE and Sixth Form colleges which became Bilston Community College in 1984. From an enrolment base of 5,000, by the time he retired this had grown to 50,000 students – probably the largest FE college in the country.
