Judicial Institute report reviews year in education
The Judicial Institute for Scotland has released its annual report for the year to 31 March 2016.
The Annual Report 2015/16 looks at, among other things, educational strategy, and technology enhanced learning.
Institute chairman, Lord Woolman, states: “During the past year the Institute has responded to a number of changes affecting the judiciary, including providing training for sheriffs appointed to the new Sheriff Appeal Court and the all Scotland Personal Injury Court.
“The Institute places great importance on reviewing all aspects of its effectiveness. To this end two significant steps have been taken this year.
The first is the introduction of a new evaluation process which will provide the organisation with feedback to measure the success, efficacy and impact of the courses it delivers.”
The Judicial Institute for Scotland (formerly the Judicial Studies Committee) was officially formed on 1st January 2013 and operates from a bespoke Learning Suite and offices in Parliament House, Edinburgh.
