The National Framework

An image of school children of different ages

A national framework for all practitioners and partners, in every setting, aiming to help in supporting learners from early years to positive, sustained destinations.

Supporting learners within the framework

The publication 'Supporting learners - from early years to positive, sustained destinations' has been published by the Scottish Government and Education Scotland. It aims to support the planning, design and provision of universal and targeted support for all children and young people towards the delivery of the entitlement that:

Every child and young person is entitled to support to enable them to gain as much as possible from the opportunities which Curriculum for Excellence can provide.

Building the Curriculum 3

This framework is for all practitioners and partners, in every setting. Although it focuses on children and young people aged 3-18 in line with Curriculum for Excellence, it also recognises the need for supporting learners from birth to 18+ and therefore aligns with the national frameworks currently in place for children’s and young people’s services in Scotland.
