To ask the Scottish Government, in relation to the Education Leaders' Forum, whether the group is still active and, if so, what its composition is; when the group last meet; how it measures the performance and outcomes of the group, and what (a) financial and (b) staffing resources it has allocated to the group.
The Education Leaders’ Forum was paused in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It last met in April 2019. The Scottish Government decided not to re-establish the Education Leaders’ Forum due to the expanded membership of the re-established Scottish Education Council and on the basis that wider stakeholders can continue to engage with Ministers and Scottish Government officials on specific issues, as and when required.
