Visitors to the Education Committee Publications page can access two types of Report published by the Committee the differences between these are

  • Reports - Committee Reports produced by the Education Committee at the end of an inquiry and the associated written and oral evidence collected during the course of an inquiry
  • Special Reports - Government responses to reports published by the Committee

Oral evidence and other correspondence published by the Committee can also be found on this page by scrolling down to the appropriate section.

The Education Committee has also started using a new written evidence E-portal, which has changed the process of submitting and publishing evidence by the Committee. Written evidence connected to an inquiry will no longer be published on this page and can now be found on specific inquiry pages, under the heading written evidence.
