First Minister Nicola Sturgeon is to set out her programme for government with education at its heart.

Ms Sturgeon’s SNP formed a minority government after winning 63 seats in May’s Scottish Parliament elections.

She will make a speech outlining her priorities for the next five years, with education, healthcare and new welfare powers high on the agenda.

Opposition parties will also get a chance to set out their priorities for the coming term over a two-day debate.
