The Electoral Commission invites all schools to take part in: #ReadyToVote – Scotland’s Schools Registration Event, March 2016.
It is easy for schools to take part. They just need to select a day during the month of March and encourage their students to go online and register to vote. The Electoral Commission is providing schools with a toolkit which will contain everything they need to deliver the event.
If you would like to take part and be sent a copy of the toolkit please email Jonathan Mitchell, at the Electoral Commission firstname.lastname@example.org supplying your schools’ name and contact details.
This initiative is being delivered in partnership with Education Scotland, SOLACE, ADES, SLS, ERO’s, SCIS, and Colleges Scotland.
Young people from across Scotland are invited to have their say on the big education issues that affect them.
The Children and Young People’s Summit will take place from 11am–2pm on Monday 23 March 2015 at the Ironworks, Inverness. This summit is part of the Scottish Government’s ongoing commitment to ensure that children and young people are at the heart of decisions which affect them and their education. This event forms part of the official Scottish Cabinet visit to Inverness. Those attending will have the opportunity to feedback their thoughts and experiences directly to Senior Ministers including the Cabinet Secretary for Education and Lifelong Learning Angela Constance.
