We've established the world’s first national multi-agency quality improvement programme - the Early Years Collaborative (EYC). The EYC is helping organisations to bridge the gap between what we know works and what we do using quality improvement methodology.
Practitioners representing the full range of early years settings are involved in the EYC via their local Community Planning Partnership (CPP). Working in multi-disciplinary groups at a local level, they are testing, measuring, implementing and scaling up improvements to services that will improve outcomes for children and families in line with GIRFEC.
We are working closely with CPPS to involve the widest range of agencies across statutory and voluntary services. If you are not participating directly in the EYC, this does not mean you do not have a central role to play. In fact, the reverse is true. We are using quality improvement methods which, once tested and proven, will be scaled up and translated into delivery models as part of business as usual.
To be successful, the EYC requires the involvement and commitment of everyone who delivers services to children and their families. If you would like more information, email us at EYCollaborative@scotland.gsi.gov.uk or contact your local CPP.
