School Education - Consultation

Consultation is a key part of the work Scottish Government statisticians undertake to ensure that the data we collect, analyse and publish meets the varied needs of users. Over time our engagement with users has moved away from large formal meetings to a much more flexible approach which draws information about user need from all users and through a variety of approaches. We recognise that not all users have the same requirements and priorities will not be the same. However, by working with users throughout the year, the Scottish Government is looking to understand these needs and then to decide on priorities and action.
