Think CONSUL will be a useful source of gathering wider community opinion.

Will help move away from usual suspects only having their views acted upon.

Exam Grade Changes. Should we have been asked?

  3 comments  •  2020-04-30  •  Community Partnership Team

Should the SQA have consulted young people in the process of changing the way grades are awarded and should young people be offered the chance to resit any exams they feel they could have done better in?

Coronavirus lockdown has resulted in the closure of all schools and educational establishments. As a result, children and young people have had the opportunity to gain more life skills than they would have gained by continuing to learn in a formal education setting.

Coronavirus and Our Communities

  5 comments  •  2020-03-23  •  admin

During these challenging times, we want to communicate with you as easily and effectively as possible and allow you to get in touch when needed. We already use multiple ways to do this including e mail (communitymatters@northlan.gov.uk) and Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/nlcommunitymatters). We also have additional sources of information for communities, older people and those experiencing financial difficulties. But we want to do more. So what would be the best way for us to share information with you and update on emerging issues? What can we do to keep you informed about whats happening in your community?
