Education Scotland

Improving life chances for all our people through the provision of excellent education and children’s services is at the heart of this Government’s ambition for Scotland. We want Scotland to be the best country in the world in which to grow up, and to be marked out by the quality of learning opportunities we provide to ensure that everyone can reach their potential as they continue to engage in learning throughout their lives.

Education Scotland is our new national improvement agency for education to play a key role in ensuring this ambition is realised. The Agency has a unique combination of roles and capabilities, giving it the potential to blend guidance, support and constructive challenge in new ways which will increase the pace of improvement across the whole of our education system.
