The Raising Attainment for All Programme was launched in June 2014, to support consistent improvement in attainment and achievement through the development of a collaborative learning system which supports the implementation of improvement methodology and enables shared learning across the country. The programme has adopted the Model for Improvement methodology, which is based on the 3-Step Improvement Framework for Scotland’s Public Services.
The programme is being delivered to schools and authorities as part of a ‘collaborative’, as with the Early Years Collaborative. This involves bringing groups of participating schools and authorities together for ‘all teach / all learn’ learning sessions. The schools involved with the programme are identifying their own areas for action and are being supported by professional Improvement Advisors to help them identify clear aims, measures and change ideas which will support the iterative testing of new ways of working to improve performance.
