Languages for all

We need Scottish education to deliver both excellence in terms of ensuring children and young people acquire a broad range of skills and capacities at the highest levels, whilst also delivering equity so that every child and young person should thrive and have the best opportunity to succeed regardless of their social circumstances or additional needs.

National Improvement Framework for Scottish Education - achieving excellence and equity (Scottish Government, 2016)

Applicable to learning languages as much as any other area of the curriculum, SCILT wholeheartedly endorses the vision outlined by the Scottish Government in the National Improvement Framework.

The 'Languages for all webpages' will provide parents, teachers and learners with information and guidance that is underpinned by the inclusive principles enshrined in the National Framework for Inclusion and in Getting It Right for Every Child (GIRFEC) and The Interventions for Equity.
