Plan to deliver equal opportunities in education

The Deputy First Minister and Cabinet Secretary for Education and Skills, John Swinney MSP, has launched a national delivery plan for Scottish education. 

Outlining the aims of the delivery plan, Mr Swinney said: "The Scottish Government will be relentless in its efforts to ensure that every child - no matter where they are from or how well off their family is - has the same opportunities and an equal chance to succeed."
The delivery plan followed engagement with a number of key education partners at an education summit focussing on raising attainment. It aims to achieve excellence and equity in Scottish education by focussing action around three key priorities:

  • closing the attainment gap;
  • ensuring a curriculum that delivers for children and teachers; and
  • empowering teachers, schools and communities to deliver for children and young people.

The plan is also closely aligned with the improvement drivers outlined in the National Improvement Framework.
