Education Scotland, in partnership with Development Trust Association Scotland (DTAS), undertook three reviews of Development Trusts in early 2016. Development Trusts are community owned and led organisations that deliver services to local communities across Scotland. There are over 400 Development Trusts in existence.

Three Development Trusts volunteered to be part of a review process with HM Inspectors, Inverclyde, Huntly and Mull and Iona. Each organisation produced a self-evaluation and engaged in dialogue with HM Inspectors. In each of the reviews, inspection teams visited a wide range of provision. At the end of the review week, HM Inspectors reported the findings to those involved.
