Requirements for Community Learning and Development (Scotland): Guidance for Local Authorities
SCDC has published a briefing on the Requirements for Community Learning and Development (Scotland):Guidance for Local Authorities.
This guidance was published by Education Scotland in May this year and concerns the requirement for local authorities to publish 3 year Community Learning and Development plans by September 2015. Although the guidance is directed at local authorities, the briefing will be relevant to other public sector organisations and third sector and community organisations.
There is a clear statement that local authorities will not be able to meet the requirements within the Regulations unless they involve partners and communities in agreeing what level of need there is for CLD support, who should provide that support - and in agreeing how the impact of that support will be evaluated.
