The Scottish Funding Council (SFC) with Education Scotland is introducing new arrangements for assuring and improving the quality of provision delivered by Scotland's colleges commencing in AY 2016-17. The arrangements have been developed by Education Scotland and SFC at the end of a four-year cycle of external arrangements for review of colleges. During this period there has been transformational change within the college sector which has altered significantly the arrangements for planning and managing the delivery of learning. This includes the formation of new, very large, multi-campus colleges, the introduction of the senior phase of Curriculum for Excellence and implementation of arrangements to Developing the Young Workforce (DYW). The new arrangements are designed to take full advantage of the changed landscape and current and emerging government priorities. They are focused on supporting and bringing about continuous improvement through effectively deploying staff; engaging productively with key stakeholders including staff, learners, schools, and employers; and maximising resources. the following are appended: (1) Guidance--Evaluative Report and Enhancement Plan; (2) Agenda--Pre Analysis Meeting; (3) Agenda--College Tri-Partite Planning Meeting; (4) Annual Enhancement and Scrutiny Activity Schedule (AESAS); and (5) Learner Engagement.
