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.

The Committee will receive an update on the inquiry from Who Cares? Scotland on 5 August, and from Scottish Government officials on 12 August.
Stage 2 amendments can now be lodged. The deadline for lodging amendments is 12 noon on Thursday 14 August.
The Committee held an evidence session on 17 June 2014 in the wake of the fire at the Glasgow School of Art.
The aim of the Inquiry was to contribute to the debate on Scotland's educational and cultural future in the context of the Referendum in 2014. The Committee has concluded the Inquiry.
