International Council of Education Advisers (ICEA)
Role of the group
The International Council of Education Advisers (ICEA) was established in 2016 to advise Ministers on how best to achieve excellence and equity in our Scottish education system.
The ICEA's role will be:
- to advise on the Scottish Government's priorities for education and ensure policy and practice
- to ensure the actions set out in the Delivery Plan published in June 2016 are influenced by international best practice
- to advise on the reporting and planning cycle of the 2018 national improvement framework and improvement plan
The ICEA has two formal meetings a year, but will take forward a workplan between meetings.
The membership of the ICEA draws upon world-leading education and business experts with a range of knowledge and extensive experience of advising educators and governments on education leadership, school improvement and reform.
