Ex-head to run SCCC

9th January 1998 at 00:00
A former headteacher has been appointed acting chief executive of the Scottish Consultative Council on the Curriculum.

Mike Baughan, who until last year was rector of Webster's High in Kirriemuir, will run the council for two years while Cameron Harrison is on secondment in Budapest setting up the Institute for Educational Policy under the auspices of financier George Soros.

Mr Baughan, a former English teacher who was rector for 10 years, has been seconded to the council as a development fellow in charge of the long awaited revision of the curriculum guidelines for secondaries.

He takes over on February 1 from Mr Harrison who has said that he plans to be back for "an exciting time" when the Scottish parliament is set up.
