Consultation on the proposed Schools (Residential Outdoor Education) (Scotland) Bil

Consultation on the proposed Schools (Residential Outdoor Education) (Scotland) Bill is now live at the Scottish Parliament.

 

Very briefly:

this would give young people in Scotland between the ages of 12 -16 a residential outdoor education experience of 5 days and 4 nights while at school. 

it proposes to limit the funding to state and grant-aided schools only.

- we propose the development of a "quality framework" agreement between residential providers and HMIE(Schools inspectorate).

- we ask for views on a number of different proposals for funding the policy.

- other general but important questions around the equity and sustainability of the proposal are sought.

Further details and the consultation survey can be found on the Scottish Parliament website: https://bit.ly/3wmwx8y

The views of IOL Members would be very welcome.
