The Scottish Parliament Education and Skills Committee is cross party and holds the Scottish Government to account on education policy and how it works in practice.

This survey is being conducted as part of our inquiry into recruiting and training new teachers. The inquiry will involve this survey, written submissions, informal focus groups and panels of witnesses in Committee meetings.

We will then hold a hearing based on your views with John Swinney, Cabinet Secretary for Education and Skills, and make recommendations for change.
