New Education Minister is a former chairman of the Bermuda College

Former National Training Board head Nalton Brangman was yesterday sworn in as a One Bermuda Alliance Senator and Education Minister in a ceremony at Government House.

He will also serve as a Government senator.

Mr Brangman served as deputy chairman, and later chairman of the NTB between 1999 and 2004 before he was replaced by Herman Tucker in January 2005.

During his time at the NTB, Mr Brangman designed and developed the first culinary apprentice programme in Bermuda, called ‘Chef Search,’ and developed 22 National Technical Standards.

A year later, he was named the chairman of Bermuda College. While the post was intended to last three years, he was dismissed from the post eight months later while carrying out an investigation into financial irregulaties at the facility.

The completed report alleged that the College was spending funds without proper financial controls, and that College President Charles Green was receiving perks without the permission of the Board of Governors. Dr Green denied any wrongdoing.

Following his dismissal, he was replaced by Dame Jennifer Smith, who stepped down after three weeks.

More recently, Mr Brangman has served as a member of the Bermuda Sloop Foundation board, Vice President of Realvest Ltd Bermuda, and as Vice Chairman and Vice President of AME Reinsurance Ltd.
