In addition to the four sub-groups, Jayne-Anne Gadhia as Chair of the Review, worked with Scottish Government officials on a Finance sub‑group concerned with assembling relevant financial information on the current student support system, with the Chair reporting directly to the Board.

Scottish Government officials provided secretariat support to both the main Review group and the sub-groups. In order to help her carry out aspects of the role of Independent Chair of the Review, Jayne-Anne Gadhia has drawn support from three members of her team within Virgin Money.
