Informed Scotland – June 2014 issue published


As always, June has been a very busy month, full of statistical releases and major research reports published before the holiday season begins.

This year, however, the Wood Commission report has been the main talking point. The final Young Workforce Commission report has received widespread backing and recognition and appears to have generated a momentum for change. As well as the Scottish Government’s ‘full welcome‘, many learning & skills organisations, teacher, business and third sector bodies have issued statements supporting the recommendations. Some have already begun to take action. It’s an accessible, well-written report with a real sense of urgency.

But we don’t begin with a clean sheet of paper… Determined to Succeed, Enterprise in Education, Education for Work & Enterprise, Education Business Partnerships, Teacher Placements, Education Industry Liaison and TVEI – and that’s not all. To make progress, it will be important to reflect and build on the legacy of these and other previous developments.

The next regular issue will be the July/August edition out early in September. However, subscribers will also receive an Organisations & People Special 2014 in August, ready for the new session. Last year’s issue was described as “worth the subscription itself!” by Bright Writing’s Sue Moody.
