About The Committee
The Committee scrutinises the policies and performance of the Scottish Government and its agencies by considering relevant legislation; conducting inquiries; scrutinising spending proposals; and carrying out any other work that it considers appropriate.
In practice, the Committee considers a variety of topics such as:
- early years and children’s services
- school, further and higher education
- lifelong learning
- the Gaelic and Scots languages
- culture and the arts.
