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.”
