The CLD Standards Council Scotland Statement of Response to the Scottish Government

EDUCATION GOVERNANCE: NEXT STEPS - EMPOWERING OUR TEACHERS, PARENTS AND COMMUINITIES TO DELIVER EXCELLENCE AND EQUITY FOR OUR CHILDREN

In his speech on June 15th, Deputy First Minister and Cabinet Secretary for Education and Skills, John Swinney, advised that the Scottish Government will consult on establishing an Education Workforce Council for Scotland which will take on the responsibilities of the Community Learning & Development Standards Council and the General Teaching Council for Scotland.

As the professional body for CLD practitioners active across Youth Work, Adult Learning and Community Development, we welcome the recognition of the significant contribution that our professional workforce makes towards the achievements of young people, adults, families and communities across Scotland.

The focus on an inclusive national registration system, builds on the successful CLD Standards Council’s mission to drive high standards of professional practice.  Over the last two years the CLD Standards Council has grown in size and status and we embrace the opportunity and challenge to design and co-create an Education Workforce Council that is inclusive of core CLD values and principles.

We look forward to playing a full and equal role in the consultation on these critical proposals and are committed to supporting our CLD professional members throughout this process and beyond.
