Framework Agreements


Framework agreement between CLD Standards Council and Education Scotland

The CLD Standards Council Team and Education Scotland Senior Officers at the signing of the Framework AgreementThis framework agreement was put in place in April 2016 marking a new stage in the relationship between Education Scotland and the CLD Standards Council. Signed by Dr Bill Maxwell, Chief Executive of Education Scotland and Ashley Pringle, Chair of the CLD Standards Council, the framework agreement sets out the strategic goals, roles and responsibilities of both organisations whilst accounting for operational requirements.

One immediate positive off-shoot was an agreement with HMIe. Pre-inspection work will now include data gathering in relation to the number of professionally registered CLD Standards Council members included in an organisation’s complement of staff and volunteers. For both parties, this significant development signals for the first time ever, the inclusion of the CLD Standards Council alongside other professional bodies operating within education and community work sectors.
