Inspection and Review
Education Scotland supports the system to gather, analyse, evaluate and share an agreed set of data, including independent external evaluation.
Our scrutiny programme reaches all sectors from early learning and childcare to adult learning and allows us to gather evidence of what is working well in our education system, areas which are showing improvement, and areas where further development is needed.

What we do and how we do it
Inspection and review supports improvement and provides assurance on quality and improvement in Scottish education.
We use a set of standards to evaluate and report on quality and improvement in Scottish education. These are set out in a series of quality frameworks.
