Education Scotland has published a new framework called How good is our Third Sector Organisation? (HGIOTSO).

This new framework supports third sector organisations to evaluate their performance and identify priorities for action. Download the framework, find out further information about using it and see case studies from third sector organisations which piloted the resource.

You can also sign up to attend one of the workshops or inputs to conferences run to support people to use HGIOTSO.
