Education, Cultural and Creative Learning and Skills Annual Action Plan

Report of the Director of Community and Children’s Services.


Members considered a report of the Director of Community and Children’s Services regarding the annual action plan to deliver the City’s educational, cultural and creative learning, and skills strategies over the 2021/22 academic year.


Members were reminded that the action plan in Appendix 1 outlined priority actions to be progressed during the 2021/22 academic year, while the actions in Appendix 2 were those which occurred on an annual basis.


A Member enquired as to the role of the Board in promoting and enabling youth voice, as referred to in the report. It was confirmed that the Board did indeed have a role in implementing actions to support youth voice and that the Education Unit were in discussion with the schools on the best forums and platforms for implementing these. A focus was being placed on gaining the views of the young people in the Family of Schools, with an initial focus around the impact of COVID-19. The Chair added that items focusing on oracy and student voice were to be expected at the December Board meeting.


RESOLVED, that:-

  • The annual action plan for the 2021/22 academic year in Appendix 1, which contains the key programmes and focus of activity to be delivered over the year to meet the aims and outcomes of the Education, Cultural and Creative Learning and Skills Strategies, be approved;
  • The annually recurring actions outlined in Appendix 2, which are the ‘core business’ actions delivered each academic year, be noted.
