Language Matters - A national conversation

Education Scotland has launched a project called Language Matters, a national conversation to discuss education terminology.

Through the project, the education community are invited to attend one of  two national conversation events on November 18 or November 29 and contribute to a Menti Word Cloud to share education terminology which they feel is unclear, duplicated or unintentionally misinterpreted in the system.

The project will provide an opportunity for practitioners and stakeholders to discuss detailed definitions around the common language and terminology used across the education system in Scotland and find some commonality.

This project brings together outstanding actions that came from the work on the Refreshed Curriculum Narrative in 2019 and will address the same issue related to terminology identified by the OECD in their recent report.
