Two Development Officers, who were former teachers, were the authors of this document. An appropriate C3 grade staff member had the overall control of the creation of the document. The staff members responsible for commissioning, editing and approving the text were C2 and C3 grade staff members.  Scottish Government staff were not involved in the editing or approval of the text.

There are no documents relating to the editing, approval, amendment and quality control of the document. The document appears to have been published in 1999, before Education Scotland was created so we have no information relating to the original commissioning.
