Response to Scottish Government consultation on the provisions of the Education Bill.

The office of the Children and Young People’s Commissioner Scotland has been working with young people for some time to understand their views and concerns surrounding exams and qualifications, and their broader education experience. It is clear there needs to be a deeper culture change across the entire education system. The creation of new national agencies must be the catalyst for system change, far more than rebranding, they must deliver enhanced support and rights-based leadership if they are to improve outcomes for children and young people. To improve upon the existing system, ongoing views of young people must be more meaningfully incorporated, to shape a system which is more responsive to their changing needs.
