to head up its public relations and information unit.



Jabri, who starts at the TTA this week, managed communications for

Hackney’s education and leisure directorate for seven years with

responsibility for media relations, publications and liaising with head

teachers and school governing bodies.



At the TTA he takes over from Trevor Cook, chief press officer with the

Department for Education and Employment who spent 18 months on

secondment with the agency.



Jabri heads a core team of four staff in charge of media relations and

maintaining contacts with key audiences such as parents, politicians and

local education authorities. He will also lead an effort to boost the

TTA’s overall profile. He reports to head of resources Stephen Hillier.



Jabri said that he would be examining Hill and Knowlton’s integrated PR

and marketing account with the TTA. Appointed in July 1995, the agency

handles a pounds 1 million budget programme.
