"Open courses offered in Scotland range from those for young people at secondary school, higher and further education, through to early/middle management, and senior managers/executives."
"Common Purpose in Scotland started back in 1992 and since then, over 2,300 people have graduated from (their) courses." Peppered throughout society in strategic organisations, these are just a few of their recent graduates:
Association of Chief Officers of Scottish Voluntary Organisations
Janet Brown, Chief Executive, Scottish Qualifications Authority
Student Loans Company
Scottish Crime & Drug Enforcement Agency
Glasgow Housing Association
Aberlour Childcare Trust
Common Purpose, adoption and fostering
The British Association for Adoption and Fostering (BAAF) closed and some of its functions transferred to Coram, and to a new entity, CoramBAAF Adoption & Fostering Academy.
The public has been reassured that the Independent Review Mechanism for England will be run by CCLC, an independent legal centre; and the National Adoption Register for England will be managed independently by First4Adoption.
Dig a little deeper and it can be seen that CCLC and First4Adoption are not independent at all.
The CCLC is Coram Children`s Legal Centre and First4Adoption is run by the charities Coram, Coram Children's Legal Centre and Adoption UK. CCLC is funded and supported by the Department for Education.
Brian Gerrish on UK Column Live today has noted that there are lots of claims of independence in this new arrangement but it is actually centralising adoption and fostering in the U.K.
More worrying is the fact that David Bell, the Common Purpose guru, heavily implicated in the push to set up the Leveson inquiry along with Julia Middleton CEO of Common Purpose, has recently been appointed as Coram`s new president.
Brian Gerrish recalls that paedophiles were buried within Common Purpose networks such as James Rennie, CEO of LBGT Youth Scotland, and Matthew Byrne who was chosen to sit on the Advisory Board in the Liverpool area and had responsibility for selecting young candidates for Common Purpose.
Despite the exposure of these men, the charity took no overt action such as police checks to protect children, and their graduates continued to go into schools and educational establishments.
