Scottish Policy


Scottish Policy Group

Lead: Laura Knox – St Andrews

A significant part of what most Planners do is associated with external policy drivers and ensuring we can help our institutions shape these policy drivers, or develop our response to them.

The policy group will engage with a range of matters where appropriate such as:

  • Scottish Government initiatives
  • Teaching and Learning policy
  • Research policy
  • Statutory returns (excluding SFC as this is covered by the SFC Interactions Group
  • NSS, TEF and UKPIs
  • Other OfS related initiatives that may impact on Scotland
  • E&D
  • Brexit and Scottish Independence
  • Supporting Universities Scotland as appropriate

The group will also share best practice in relation to ensuring our own institutions can distil, summarise and communicate key external policy drivers to our internal stakeholders.

The Group will meet virtually 3-4 times a year or when there is a need.
