Education Scotland Report: Thematic Inspection of Readiness for Empowerment

The Education Scotland report ‘Thematic Inspection: Readiness for Empowerment’, a product of inspector’s visits to all local authorities, was published on 20 December.  

While oral feedback was provided to each local authority individually, the published report looks at the Scotland-wide picture only.  The report explains what was found, including some positive information about steps local authorities had already taken to start to deliver the empowerment agenda, and makes a series of recommendations designed to progress that agenda.  

Those recommendations are targeted at National partners, Local authorities and Headteaches & Schools.  These include the need to: 

  • address staffing shortages which are hampering the capacity for empowerment within schools
  • put in place arrangements which ensure greater consistency in HT empowerment in relation to staffing and budgets
