Moray’s commitment to sustainable education strengthened

Press Releases   •   Sep 17, 2018 08:27 BST

A delegation of Moray Council’s education leaders attended the recent Northern Alliance conference on Friday (14th September) to explore and share approaches to maintaining high quality educational provision.

The Northern Alliance partnership joins the eight northernmost local authorities and plays a vital role in supporting sustainable school communities through sharing innovation and good practice.

Chair of Children and Young People’s Services Committee, Cllr Sonya Warren, was joined by Moray Council's Acting Corporate Director (Education & Social Care) and Head of Schools and Curriculum Development and said of the event:

“Many of the challenges facing Moray in terms of educational attainment, resourcing and the school estate are similar for our colleagues in the Northern Alliance, so it’s important we work together to come up with solutions to these issues and share knowledge and services where possible.

“The key message I took away from the conference is that the sustainability of good quality education fit for the 21st century in our communities is vital to prepare our young people for a fast changing modern world.

“We have great opportunities to transform our present systems to meet the needs of our young people and provide them all with positive school learning experiences with a fair equity of learning outcomes to help equip them well for moving on in the wider world of work”.

In attendance alongside Highland, Shetland, Orkney, Western Isles, Moray, Aberdeenshire, Aberdeen City and Argyll and Bute Councils were representatives from Education Scotland, the Scottish Government and the General Teaching Council for Scotland.

Famous for its colony of dolphins, fabulous beaches and more malt whisky distilleries than any where else in Scotland, Moray is a thriving area and a great place to live. Nestling between Aberdeenshire and the Highlands, Moray stretches from Tomintoul in the south to the shores of the Moray Firth, from Keith in the east to Brodie Castle in the west.
