Project

Evaluating the impact of the Scottish Government funded Community Resilience Development Officer Post

Waterfront town

The Scottish Government (SG) funds a development officer post at Education Scotland, to help embed resilience thinking and resources (located on the Ready for Emergencies website) within the Curriculum for Excellence delivered in Scottish schools. This includes teaching on: the causes of extreme weather; its impact on communities (specifically flooding); and the ways in which individuals and communities can adapt to and mitigate the impact of related emergencies.

The aim of this study is to evaluate the Scottish Government funded Community Resilience Development Officer post at Education Scotland. The evaluation will help inform the Scottish Government in terms of planning, and funding, future posts of this kind.

Project Objectives

  • Demonstrate the degree of success of the Development Officer post
  • Identify the impacts of the post
