Benchmarking in Education


Insight is a major online benchmarking tool to help bring about improvements for pupils in the senior phase. It is a professional tool for secondary schools and local authorities to identify areas of success and where improvements can be made. First released in September 2014, it was updated in February and we are working towards the next release in August.

Insight has been developed by the Scottish Government in partnership with Education Scotland, Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA), Association of Directors of Education Scotland (ADES), Educational Institute of Scotland (EIS) and School Leaders Scotland (SLS).

Further information on Insight can be found here.
