Selection and Appointment

The national Children's Panel Recruitment Campaign is launched each year by the Scottish Government. Each year adverts will appear in national and local newspapers from the beginning of August until mid September. Not all authorities will however require to recruit each year.

Scottish Ministers make the appointments on the recommendations of the Children’s Panel Advisory Committee (CPAC) for the local authority area. For new appointments this involves application forms, interviews and group discussions. The initial period of appointment for a panel member is between 3 and 5 years and is renewable where a further recommendation is received from the CPAC, following monitoring.
