HES is a charitable organisation overseen by a board of trustees, who are all active or former home educators. Between us we have a huge range of knowledge and experience of the many approaches to this flexible form of learning. HES also has an active membership of home educators and supporters.
As a body we are working with local authorities to support improvements to issues recently highlighted in the substantial Scottish home education study Home Truths, written by our colleagues at the Scottish Home Education Forum.
We are developing training around home education, and will lobby to have this completed by all education professionals and health visitors.
