Informed Scotland October 2019 – Equity, diversity & pause for thought


It’s extremely rare, but last month was a quiet one for learning & skills in Scotland.

Although there were no major announcements, a number of items are well worth highlighting:

Once again, numerous consultations and surveys are seeking your input. There’s a Scottish Government adult learning survey, Education Scotland’s annual STEM professional learning survey, plus QAA’s consultation on transnational education and the Scottish Parliament’s consultation on a proposed Disabled Children & Young People (Transitions) (Scotland) Bill.
