Who’s where in Scottish learning & skills? 2022

The 10th Informed Scotland Organisations & People Special has just been published to coincide with the start of the 2022–23 academic session.

This annual snapshot of a busy, dynamic landscape helps our subscribers to quickly locate the key organisations and make sense of where they fit into the bigger picture. They find it a useful directory of the main bodies and institutions operating across business, education, community & adult learning, government and wider society. Listings include:

  • Sector-specific skills bodies
  • Local authority education departments and regional improvement collaboratives
  • Colleges and universities
  • Teacher education institutions
  • Developing the Young Workforce regional groups
  • Knowledge exchange, research pools & innovation centres
  • National resources, libraries and science centres

There are now links to over 420 organisations, over twice as many as in the first edition in 2013.

Notes throughout highlight the changes over the past year, including new organisations, mergers and rebrands, and new senior appointments, promotions and retirements.

11 organisations changed their names since the 2021 edition, including: UHI colleges, most notably Lews Castle College UHI, which is now UHI Outer Hebrides; Children’s University Scotland – now Curiosity Collective; Construction Scotland Innovation Centre – now Built Environment – Smarter Transformation; and Royal Caledonian Education Trust – now Forces Children Scotland. One organisation closed, Children’s Neighbourhoods Scotland, which only opened in 2018.

All new subscribers receive a copy, then the monthly issues keep them updated about further changes throughout the next 12 months.
