Colleges Scotland published its Think Piece on the Learning and Skills Journey, at the end of last year.  In it, we set out our vision for a new coherent and equitable learning framework for those aged 16 and over.  This involves a more co-ordinated approach across schools, colleges, universities and employers, and one that puts learners at the heart of the process.

With this in mind, Colleges Scotland hosted a seminar on Thursday 26 January 2017 at City of Glasgow College.  A record of the discussions are below which were recorded by graphic facilitator Catherine McKay, Listen Think Draw.
