As part of Scottish Government’s response to the final report from the Commission for Developing Scotland’s Young Workforce, The Scottish Funding Council have been asked to tackle the gender imbalance in Colleges and Universities in Scotland. They are currently developing a Gender Action Plan, to tackle the gender inequities in the most imbalanced subject areas in Further and Higher Education. After engaging with Colleges and Universities they are now at the next stage of consultation. You can find a lot more info about the plan via the link above.
The Scottish Funding Council are looking to gather thoughts for the Gender Action Plan, from industry and training bodies. Closing date for the consultation is the 31st of August, so only a few days left, but we’re hoping to reach as many of you as possible in that short time.
