The Scottish Government has developed proposals for changes in the governance of education and the establishment of a new Education Workforce Council.
They are now consulting on the provisions of the Education (Scotland) Bill that will put the proposed changes into legislation.
You can access and respond to the consultation on the Scottish Government Consultation hub https://consult.gov.scot/learning-directorate/education-scotland-bill/
The Standards Council will be submitting a response to the consultation and is seeking practitioners’ views to inform this. The consultation themes may not seem relevant to CLD at first sight but in fact could have a significant impact on practitioners and CLD practice.
The Standards Council has prepared the Perspective for CLD paper to stimulate discussion and consideration of the implications for CLD, both in relation to the new workforce council and the other aspects of the proposals.
Professional Discussion Events, where practitioners can discuss the proposals and explore the implications for CLD practice, are on-going. A calendar of events is available on i-develop, so please look out for an event near you.
We look forward to hearing your comments and encourage you also to respond directly to the Scottish Government, using the perspective note if this helps you to frame your response.
