Vantage Lecture Series 1 - The Real David Cameron (Lecture Series)

Back to calendar

The Vantage Lecture Series is a sequence of one-hour, online lectures delivered by national and international experts. Each series will explore a ‘big question’ related to education within our regional area from the speaker’s own experiences and vantage point.

From their own vantage point, season one speakers will explore the following question: What might the substance of levelling up look like in the education sector when we do not yet know the true impact of the pandemic on our most disadvantaged children and families?

David was Director of Children’s Services for Stirling Council. Prior to that he was Head of Education in East Lothian. He has also been an Area Manager providing support and challenge to a large group of schools in Fife, Performance Review Manager with overall responsibility for Quality Assurance and, before that an Adviser responsible for curriculum development and assessment. He worked in schools up to the early ‘90s and has extensive experience in school management at all levels and experience of leading a major national development of curriculum and assessment in Scotland introducing new Standard Grade courses.

David was President of the Association of Directors of Education Scotland and has been involved with a range of national groups, notably on Curriculum for Excellence, Outdoor Education and Looked After Children. As a consultant, he has supported Midlothian Council in their reorganisation of services to Children and Families and engaged with Skills Development Scotland in a major review of policy procedures and practice. He has since led reviews on class size regulations and arrangements for devolved school management.
