Lay Member Volunteering

Closing date: 29th February 2024, with interviews (conducted virtually) on week beginning 5th March 2024

The education inspectorate is actively recruiting members of the public to join our school inspection teams as lay members.

Lay members make a positive and valuable contribution to improving Scottish education. They bring an important perspective to our work. Lay members help inspection teams to understand how well a school is doing from the perspective of parents, pupils and where appropriate, the wider community. Lay members play a valued role of an inspection team by engaging with parents, children and young people.

Lay members spend one day in the school and contribute to the overall work of a school inspection team, resulting in a published report for parents. The report identifies strengths and areas for improvement and helps schools to improve the experiences and achievements of children and young people.

Lay members are drawn from all walks of life. The inspectorate is looking for people from a variety of backgrounds, with different skills, experience and knowledge. Our lay member team benefits from a membership drawn from a range of life experiences.
