Education and Culture Committee


About The Committee

Welcome to the Education and Culture Committee’s webpages, which provide full details of the Committee’s work.

Like other subject committees, the Committee scrutinises the policies and performance of the Scottish Government and its agencies by considering  relevant legislation; conducting inquiries; scrutinising spending proposals; and carrying out any other work that it considers appropriate.

In practice, the Committee considers a variety of topics such as— 

  • early years and children’s services
  • school, further and higher education
  • lifelong learning
  • the Gaelic and Scots languages
  • culture and the arts.

The Committee usually meets on Tuesday mornings. Details of meetings can be found on these webpages and public gallery seats can be booked in advance from Visitor Services.  

If you wish to receive regular updates on the work of the Committee please email the committee mailbox with your details and you will be added to the Committee’s email contact list.
