Securing the Adoption of Good Practice in Scotland's Colleges. A Report by HM Inspectors of Education for the Scottish Funding Council
Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Education
The purpose of this report is to describe the main mechanisms currently in use in Scotland's colleges to ensure that the adoption of good practice actually happens. It investigates how colleges identify and promote good practice in their own institutions; how they develop strategies and processes to ensure good practice is shared, adopted and implemented effectively; how they gain awareness of and access to sector-leading and innovative practice in other institutions; and how they evaluate the impact of this activity on learners. The report makes reference to research and activity elsewhere in the UK in relation to the sharing and adoption of good practice, to identify what can be learned. Finally, the report makes a number of recommendations for improvement. A summary of findings is presented, identification of good practices is provided, and recommendations for moving forward and for improvement are given. Appended are: (1) Colleges which took part in the consultation and other organisations consulted; (2) Bibliography; and (3) Glossary. (Contains 13 footnotes.)
