Additional Support for Learning review: action plan - November 2022 update

An updated Additional Support for Learning (ASL) action plan, setting out the progress made since November 2021, to deliver against the recommendations made by the review of implementation of additional support for learning.


This action plan sets out the progress that the Scottish Government, COSLA, ADES and our partners have made in the last year to deliver the recommendations from Angela Morgan's review of additional support for learning to improve outcomes for children and young people with additional support needs. It signals our continued commitment to deliver improvement of implementation and highlights the actions we will continue to take over the course of this Parliament to ensure meaningful change for children and young people. This updated plan builds on progress outlined in the original joint action plan published in October 2020 and the update in November 2021.

Each action has a reference number linked to these themes.

Each action seeks to address one or more recommendations from the ASL Review. The relevant recommendation is set out in the final column.
