Date lodged: 27 March 2017
To ask the Scottish Government when its working group will commence work on habilitation provision recommendations contained in the Education and Culture Committee's 10th Report, 2015 (Session 4), Attainment of pupils with a sensory impairment.
Answered by: Shona Robison 13 April 2017
The Scottish Government welcomed the Education Committee inquiry into the attainment of pupils with sensory impairment. In response the Scottish Government set up a Short Life Working Group to respond to the Committee’s recommendations. A plan which sets out actions to deliver against all of the recommendations was developed and we are confident of delivering against each.
A number of the actions to deliver the recommendations have already been completed and we are actively considering with key stakeholders the activities and actions required to deliver on the remaining recommendations by December 2018.
