Education Reform: consulting with children and young people

Posted on

Alongside the Children’s Parliament and Together the Scottish Youth Parliament (SYP) is supporting children and young people to meaningfully participate in the decisions being made around education reform in Scotland.

Professor Ken Muir CBE is leading a consultation on education reform for the Scottish Government. Alongside this, SYP, Children’s Parliament, & Together are running a survey and focus groups for children and young people to have their views heard.

There are several ways to ensure children and young people’s views can contribute to the consultation.

There is an online survey for young people, who are attending secondary school or college, to complete independently.

Given the sometimes complex nature of the topic, there are also online tools available for adults to use when supporting children and young people to respond to the survey.
