Civil Service Local Scotland is pleased to have partnered with the Constitution Group in the Cabinet Office to deliver an interactive Discovery Session on Devolution and why it should matter to you. 

The session will look at the history of devolution in the UK and what it means for civil servants today. It will explore the complexities surrounding the devolution settlements across the UK and consider how EU Exit is changing the way devolution works in practice.

 It will give you a real sense of why devolution matters, the current challenges driving our work and the role that civil servants will play in shaping devolution and governance across the UK in the coming years.

Speakers from Constitution Group will share their experiences and insights and you will also get a chance to hear from the Scottish Government, Social Security Scotland about the very recent devolution of welfare powers to Scotland, providing a valuable insight into how devolution is working in practice.
