The Staff College Scotland (SCS) is the professional development arm of ADES and it supports CPD for ADES members at each stage of their career. 

The college provides support for newly appointed colleagues, seminars, structured modules, Leadership retreats for aspiring chief officers, and of course the annual conference.

The administrative support for SCS is provided by The Staff College which is an equivalent (and bigger) organisation for Directors of Children’s Services in England. David Tilbrook who is a Project Manager for the Staff College is the main support for SCS. Most of the communications you will receive about SCS activities will come from David.
