The RSE hosted a roundtable discussion involving Fellows and Young Academy members as a contribution to the Scottish Funding Council (SFC) review into the coherence and sustainability of further and higher education in Scotland.
The SFC review is being undertaken at a critical time for Scotland’s tertiary education sector given the significant and long term impacts of Covid-19.
The roundtable discussed key issues that the SFC review should consider, including those relating to learning and skills, research and innovation, funding and governance of tertiary education.
The RSE looks forward to engaging further as the review progresses.
