As reported in last month's update, the SCoPEd Oversight Committee (SOC) is continuing with the recruitment of an Independent Chair (IC) and two Expert by Experience (EbE) roles.

The IC will work closely with the chief executives of the partners to help navigate the challenges and opportunities of SCoPEd, building on the new collaboration. The EbEs will bring the voice of clients into the work of the project. Interviews for both positions will be taking place this month.

The expanded Technical Group (TG) continues to meet monthly and is currently discussing evidence sources presented by new partners for suggested amendments to some of the competences. The TG will make recommendations for changes or additions to competences to the Expert Reference Group (ERG) where evidence supports this.
