Higher Education Governance Bill Oral Question, 28/0115 [S]

During Portfolio Question Time on 28 January 2015 Nanette Milne (Con) asked the Scottish Government what educational principles will underpin the higher education governance bill.

The Caninet Secretary for Education and Lifelong Learning, Angela Constance replied, the Scottish Government is investing more than 1 billion this year and next in higher education institutions. In return, we expect institutions to embrace good governance that is based on open, accountable and democratic principles. Improved governance will help to create better learning environments where staff and students have more say in how their institutions operate.

Our consultation on a higher education governance bill ends this month; the views of all stakeholders will, of course, be considered.

For the full answer to this and any subsidiary questions see the Scottish Parliament Official Report 28 January 2015 which is available from the Scottish Parliament website.
