Argyll and Bute Council have developed a scheduled programme of community engagement to discuss and co-develop proposals for enhanced school leadership in the region.
Following the Community Services Committee’s decision in June 2021 that Argyll and Bute Council would undertake an extensive consultation process.
This thorough, open and accessible consultation process will be central to shaping the Education Transformation Programme proposals before they are presented to the Community Services Committee.
The Education Transformation Board will develop proposals on school leadership transformation informed by this consultation process, listening to all stakeholders from parents, pupils and communities to education professionals, trade unions and policymakers across the whole of Argyll and Bute.
Argyll and Bute Council’s Policy Lead for Education, Councillor Yvonne McNeilly, said: “The best outcomes for our young people are at the heart of all our work. We are a Council that listens to our communities and this proactive engagement programme will be at the core of our decision-making.
"We very much welcome the views and ideas of our communities and look forward to seeing what their vision is for the future of Education Services in Argyll and Bute.
"To provide the very best for our children and young people we must take positive action to deliver a sustainable education service. This expanded engagement programme is one such positive action.”
