Education section 70 form: make a complaint

Section 70 complaints can only be made in respect of an alleged failure by a relevant body to carry out a duty imposed on them by legislation relating to education.

It does not apply to common-law duties (such as a duty of care) nor is it concerned with the merits of a decision of any education provider (section 70 is not intended to enable the Scottish Ministers to quash a decision made by any education provider just because they disagree with it).

Section 70 gives a discretionary power for the Scottish Ministers to make an order to enforce a statutory duty to be carried out.

Education Scotland will investigate the case and act as advisers to the Scottish Ministers.
