Customers include 32 Scottish local authorities, universities with a faculty of education or equivalent, colleges who deliver the 3-18 curriculum, schools outside of LA control who also deliver the 3-18 curriculum and any body of the Scottish Government or funded by the Scottish Government who has a primary remit within the 3 – 18 curriculum. Glow is available for early years also – local authority and establishments in partnership with local authorities get access via their local authority, private nurseries are able to get logins for staff via Education Scotland’s partner account process – more details will be added here.
Glow Partners – they come on to Glow as individuals with their account created by Education Scotland or other Glow customers. They cannot create further accounts but they can participate in all aspects of Glow. They are people or organisations who are involved in the delivery of the 3 – 18 curriculum.
