New Chair of Scottish Advisory Committee

Jackie and Barry at Gold Awards

Jackie Brock, CEO of Children in Scotland, is the new chair of the Scottish Advisory Committee. She officially took over the position from Glenn Rodger at the Gold Award Presentations earlier this month.

Jackie, pictured left with our Director Barry, was the Deputy Director of Learning and Support at the Scottish Government and piloted Curriculum for Excellence through its many iterations. She is author of the recent Brock Report – the Scottish Government’s report into Child Protection Systems.

Jackie is hugely respected across local and national government and we are absolutely delighted that she will be joining the committee.
