Learning estate strategy

The Learning Estate Strategy and its guiding principles provide a platform for investment in the learning estate across Scotland and set out our strategic approach for managing the learning estate.

National Performance Framework Context

This Learning Estate Strategy is being published in the context of the refreshed National Performance Framework (updated in June 2018), which at its heart focuses on creating a more successful country with opportunities for all of Scotland to flourish through increased wellbeing, and sustainable and inclusive economic growth.

Quality education and associated infrastructure are at the heart of many of the national outcomes and their associated indicators and development goals. The specific national outcomes to which this strategy relates most are:

  • We grow up loved, safe and respected so that we realise our full potential
  • We are well educated, skilled and able to contribute to society
  • We are healthy and active
  • We live in communities that are inclusive, empowered, resilient and safe
  • We have thriving and innovative businesses, with quality jobs and fair work for everyone
  • We have a globally competitive, entrepreneurial, inclusive and sustainable economy
