THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
Following completion of the education governance review consultation in January 2017, and consultation on proposals for a funding formula which is expected to begin shortly, this seminar will provide a timely opportunity to discuss future changes to governance structures within Scottish education.
Delegates will consider how the education community can contribute to, and prepare for, future plans to transfer powers from local authorities to schools - including decision-making and educational funding - as well as next steps for the expansion of school clusters and the intention to form new educational regions.
The seminar will bring together Members of the Scottish Parliament and senior officials from The Scottish Government, regulators and other agencies with representatives from education, early years, childcare, local government, academia, trade unions, parent and campaigning groups, and other interested and affected parties, together with reporters from the national and trade press based in Scotland and elsewhere.
