Advisers visit Inverness school
The world-leading education and business experts who form Scotland’s International Council of Education Advisers visit Inverness today to discuss improving attainment in Scottish education.
They will be joined by Deputy First Minister John Swinney as they tour the city’s Cauldeen Primary School. Mr Swinney said: “Scotland is extremely fortunate to have access to the extensi ve experience of our International Council of Education Advisers.
“In our efforts to create a world-class education system that delivers excellence and equity for all, their advice and insight is an extremely powerful and trusted, independent resource. Closing the attainment gap and making sure every child has the best possible start in life means listening to the experiences of education professionals and young people from a wide variety of backgrounds and areas.”
Adviser Professor Chris Chapman added: “The council has been keen to ensure that it sees Scotland from a range of perspectives.”
