Learning reviews (children and young people)

The Care Inspectorate, on behalf of the Scottish Government, acts as a central collation point for all learning reviews carried out by Child Protection Committees (CPCs) in Scotland. 

The Care Inspectorate is responsible for reviewing the effectiveness of the processes for each learning review and for providing feedback to individual Chief Officer Groups and CPCs.

All learning reviews reports will be shared with the Care Inspectorate.  The National Guidance for Child Protection Committees for Undertaking Learning Reviews published in September 2021, clearly sets out that CPCs will inform the Care Inspectorate of their decision on whether to carry out a learning Review.  On the completion of a learning review, a copy of the full report should be sent to us.

Notifications

CPCs are required to notify the Care Inspectorate of their decision to proceed or not to proceed to a learning review using the Care Inspectorate’s eform system. To do so, the CPC needs to have a user account to log into the system.
