Alice Webb

BBC Children’s & Education


Director of BBC Children’s since February 2015, Alice took over the BBC’s Education portfolio in May 2019. Alice is responsible for the UK’s two most popular networks for our youngest audiences, CBeebies and CBBC, along with their associated websites, YouTube channels, apps and radio stations. In 2016, she launched the BBC’s Big Digital Plan for Children, outlining how the corporation will keep pace with the rapidly changing way in which children consume content. This was followed by the launch of a dedicated children’s iPlayer app in 2016 and the largest new investment in content for children for a generation in 2017 – £34m over three years. In May 2019 she took charge of BBC Education, creating a new division and bringing together the BBC’s offer for children and young audiences.
