The Glasgow Colleges’ Regional Board is delighted to welcome our new Chair, Janie McCusker to our team.  

Appointed by the Scottish Government to this four-year post, Ms McCusker brings a wealth of experience to the Board.  She previously served as Chair of West Lothian College Regional Board and has experience of establishing and leading departments in multi-cultural environments.

Ms McCusker also served with the Royal Air Force for 22 years and has worked in the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe and the United Nations, recently completing a term of office with UNICEF as Principal Adviser for Security Coordination. She holds a MA in Conflict Resolution and is a member of the Institute of Leadership and Management.

GCRB will benefit from Ms McCusker’s extensive knowledge and experience of governance, risk management, change management and mediation. Under her leadership we look forward to working with Glasgow’s colleges to build Scotland’s most responsive, inclusive and effective regional further education system.
