National Improvement Framework

In December 2018, the Scottish Government released the 2019 National Improvement Framework and Improvement Plan. It updates the original proposals, in 2016, around standardised testing, school self-evaluation and the role of parents in school development and improvement.

The 2019 revisions include greater focus on children and young people’s health and wellbeing, improving access to early learning and childcare, and strengthening support to schools through the Regional Improvement Collaboratives (RICs).

A summary of the main issues for the 2019 Improvement Plan is available on the Scottish Government's 2019 National Improvement Framework and Improvement Plan web page.

The NASUWT has engaged extensively with the Scottish Government and other national-level bodies on the principles on which the Framework is based and its implementation.

The NASUWT will continue to ensure that the interests of teachers and school leaders are represented robustly in these discussions. Regular updates on developments will be available on this page.
