A snapshot of the Scottish learning & skills landscape



The fourth annual Informed Scotland Organisations & People Special has just been published to coincide with the start of the 2016–17 academic session.

It provides a snapshot of an ever-changing landscape.

Each year we add more items – this year there are links to over 280 organisations, up from 150 in the first edition in 2013.

Subscribers find it a useful directory of the main bodies and institutions operating across business, education, community & adult learning, government and wider society, including:

  • Sector-specific skills bodies
  • Local authority education departments
  • Colleges & universities
  • Teacher education institutions
  • Knowledge exchange & innovation centres

There have been many changes since we published the 2015 edition – new organisations and mergers, new appointments and promotions, and retirements and closures. We’ve also enlarged the Developing the Young Workforce section to include the 14 industry-led regional groups established to-date.

Subscribers receive the Special as a bonus, in addition to their regular monthly digests. Last year’s issue prompted more great feedback: ‘I, and I am sure many others, like its comprehensive simplicity: you have assembled a list all in one place that is very useful’; ‘Another good edition’; ‘Very helpful as usual thank you’; ‘Well done!’

All new subscribers will receive a copy – find out how to join the growing list and stay well informed.
