To ask the Scottish Government, further to its news release of 25 October 2016, Review of student support, whether it will give a breakdown of the full remit of the review.
Answered by: Shirley-Anne Somerville 20 April 2017
I announced last year that an independent review of further and higher education student support would be chaired by Jayne-Anne Gadhia, CEO of Virgin Money. The Review is underway and has a remit to thoroughly review the system of student support to ensure that it is fair and effective. In particular, it will explore the most effective support for the poorest and most vulnerable students. The Review is scheduled to report to Ministers by Autumn 2017.
