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.
If you wish to receive regular updates on the work of the Committee please email the Committee Clerk email@example.com and you will be added to the Committee’s email contact list.
The Committee is currently seeking views on three topics under consideration.
The next evidence session is scheduled for 24 February 2015.
The Cabinet Secretary for Education and Lifelong Learning will attend our meeting on 3 February. The focus of the meeting will be the new Highers.
We welcome your questions for the Cabinet Secretary on the new Highers or other topical issue relating to the Curriculum for Excellence. We would also welcome written submissions on the new Highers.
Send your questions or submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org by 27 January.
The Committee received an update on the inquiry from Who Cares? Scotland on 5 August, and from Scottish Government officials on 12 August.
