Who’s where in Scottish learning & skills?


The fifth annual Informed Scotland Organisations & People Special has just been published to coincide with the start of the 2017–18 academic session.

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
  • Developing the Young Workforce regional groups
  • Knowledge exchange & innovation centres
