Universities Scotland’s response to the National Discussion survey

Universities Scotland have submitted their response to the survey for the National Discussion on the future of education in Scotland.

Learners in the future will need an education that addresses future environmental, digital, global, economic challenges and acquire the knowledge and skills to thrive. We also need to ensure no one is left behind.

Our response stresses the need for an education system that develops well prepared students (for university, college, or work) both nationally and internationally, and a curriculum and education system that is inspiring and motivating for learners. We need to be ambitious for all learners, not just children and young people, as people return to education to upskill/reskill to improve employment prospects, return to learning as an adult returner or continue to interact with learning as part of the lifelong learning ecosystem.
