The monthly meeting of the Education Committee took place on Wednesday, 15 August 2018.
A discussion was held on strategic priorities that will assist with the budgetary decision-making for the Directorate for the next financial year.
The Committee was also asked to consider potential capital expenditure that is likely to arise from the strategic priorities for the next three years. Areas identified for which capital investment is likely to be necessary includes funding to ensure safety and accessibility in existing schools, investment in technology, and consideration and potential development of a single primary school.
The Committee agreed that any consideration would require the input from members of the public followed by the development of a business case.
It was also agreed that guidelines should be formulated to assist with decisions in approving Post Graduate Certificate of Education (PGCE) for Post-School Scholarship students.
