Governance of the CLD Standards Council

The CLD Standards Council aims to govern itself and manage its business as far as possible in the way that an independently-constituted body carrying out public functions would do, while remaining formally a part of the host organisation, currently Education Scotland.

The following documents describe the way in which the CLD Standards Council is directed, controlled and led. They define the relationships and the distribution of rights and responsibilities among those who work with, and in, the CLD Standards Council.
