    The Excite.Ed project kicked off in late September 2016. It focused on the governance review being undertaken by the Scottish Government which is seeking to deliver excellence and equity in Scottish education. The project was motivated by the defining mission of the Scottish Government to raise attainment and make demonstrable progress in closing the gap between those children and young people who are the least and most disadvantaged.

    The project partners Young Scot, Children in Scotland and the Scottish Youth Parliament delivered Excite.Ed between September 2016 and January 2017. Excite.Ed involved workshops with children and young people to understand their perspectives as experts of their own experience, and identify the changes needed in order for the Scottish Government to realise its ambition of an improved and fairer education system in Scotland.

    Paul Gault was the project manager, lead researcher and initiator of the proposal to Scottish Government, he co-ordinated meetings between the three delivery partners, facilitated activities at the workshops with young people and oversaw and co-authored the final project report.
