Feedback Reminder!

Louise Hogg Uncategorized

The current engagement and consultation exercise is due to come to an end on Thursday 31st March. We would like to thank everyone who has already taken the time to submit a response. We also want to provide a reminder to anyone who intends responding but have not done so already.

Consultation is primarily being conducted via the Empowering our Educators website. It includes clear guidance on how to submit feedback in a structured and meaningful manner. This protects the integrity of the collected responses and ensure that nothing is missed – it is all stored securely and backed up.

Feedback is, however, also arriving through other channels. Argyll and Bute Council have agreed to accept feedback, however it arrives. We have committed to acknowledging every piece of feedback we do receive, but we cannot guarantee receipt of feedback which is not submitted through the correct channels (i.e. the empoweringoureducators.co.uk website or the [email protected] email).

The safest way to ensure that your voice is heard is to follow the guidance and submit feedback via the website – links for each group are provided below.

The feedback (data) from consultation will be collated and analysed. As per the Scottish Government’s Consultation Good Practice Guidance, Argyll and Bute Council will be using an external agency, Stand, to ensure the integrity of collected raw data. Stand will collate and analyse the data and generate an analysis report for consideration by the Education Service.

Feedback will be segmented by audience group and geographic area. Island responses will be separated and reviewed to facilitate an Island Communities Impact Assessment. Equality impact assessments will also be prepared.

The Education Service will review and sign off on the analysis provided by Stand. The learnings and recommendations will inform the Council’s written paper to Community Services Committee in Autumn 2022. The paper will incorporate details of the consultation process and level of engagement.

The report and recommendations will be published, with the data made available on the Empowering Our Educators website in due course.
