The National Parent Forum of Scotland is delighted to announce, after the popularity of the event in June, that we are hosting another  live Q&A with John Swinney, Deputy First Minister and Cabinet Secretary for Education and Skills.

The event will take place on Thursday 10th September 2020, 7pm – 8.30pm, and it is an opportunity for parents to receive answers to their questions about education, and the way forward this coming year.

NPFS Chair, Joanna Murphy, will be directing questions live to Mr Swinney. These questions will be collected from parents in advance of the meeting, so please make sure you have emailed your question(s). This is to ensure we cover as many issues and concerns as possible.

Please submit your questions in advance to We anticipate a high volume of questions, and therefore it may not be possible to answer each one we receive, however we will endeavour to ask questions that are representative of the range of questions we receive.

If you are unable to attend on the evening, the Q&A will be uploaded in full to the NPFS youtube channel shortly after broadcasting. There will also be the option to view the Q&A with subtitles on the youtube video.
