Informed Scotland – September 2013 issue published


The hottest topics this month were creative learning and digital skills, key areas for development, progress – and some concern – right across the landscape.

Major publications summarised in the September issue include the first report from the Commission for Developing Scotland’s Young Workforce; Creative Scotland’s new Creative Learning Plan; and UKCES’s Technology and Skills in the Digital Industries report.

The focal point for many announcements in the school sector was Education Scotland’s annual Scottish Learning Festival. New resources were launched, and agreements and funding commitments were made.

It was also a good place to spot items that might otherwise have slipped under the Informed Scotland radar – such as the launch of Comhairle nan Eilean Siar’s online self-evaluation tool. Great to see how Iain Stewart has taken forward this development, enhancing an HMIE resource Angela had the pleasure to work on a few years ago!

Bright Writing’s Sue Moody commented, ‘The Organisations and People list is extremely useful for me – worth the subscription itself!
