Responding to This Consultation

This consultation asks a number of questions about STEM education, training and lifelong learning in Scotland.

Responses should reach us by 31 January 2017. Earlier responses would be welcome.

Responses can either be sent through the Scottish Government's Citizen Space consultation platform by email or by hard copy (a paper copy through the post).

The most straightforward way to respond is on-line through Citizen Space. Details are available in the Consultation Hub on the consultation section of the Scottish Government's website: https://consult.scotland.gov.uk/stem/a-stem-education-and-training-strategy/

Citizen Space contains some mandatory fields asking for details of the person or body responding to the consultation and whether the person or body is happy for their response to be published.

Email or hard copy responses must include the Government Respondent Information Form which is provided at the back of this document. This asks for details of the person or body responding to the review and whether the person or body is happy for their response to be published.

There is no obligation to respond to all questions. We welcome responses to some or all of the questions.

If you ask for your response not to be published we will regard it as confidential and will treat it accordingly. All respondents should be aware that the Scottish Government is subject to the provisions of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 and would therefore have to consider any request made to it under the Act for information relating to responses made to this consultation.

We will actively seek views from a wide range of people and interest groups during the consultation process. We will be holding focus groups, conversation days and roundtable discussions with as many people as we can and we will reach out to people through social media. You can find more details through the Scottish Government website:

Next steps in the process

Where respondents have given permission for their response to be made public, and after we have checked that they contain no potentially defamatory material, responses will be made available to the public on the Scottish Government Consultation Hub:
http://consult.scotland.gov.uk/

How will this be used?

Following the closing date, all responses will be analysed and considered along with other available evidence to help us shape future proposals for STEM education, training and lifelong learning provision in Scotland.
