Education - Achieving Excellence and Equity: National Improvement Framework and improvement plan 2023

Sets out the vision and priorities for Scottish education that have been agreed across the system, and the national improvement activity that needs to be undertaken to help deliver those key priorities.


This year's National Improvement Framework demonstrates our long term commitment to a collaborative approach to improving Scotland's education system. New initiatives build on earlier ones, learning from what works and what teachers, schools and young people tell us they need.

Our vision of excellence and equity is a shared endeavour, with partners including local authorities, early years practitioners, parents/carers, teachers, lecturers and care services playing a pivotal role in improving outcomes for children and young people.

This collaborative approach will help to ensure that Scottish education remains a world class system which places the needs and voices of children and young people at the very heart of education.
