What is Strategic Equity Funding?
Strategic Equity Funding (SEF) is £43 million to be shared by all 32 local authorities to invest in approaches to achieving the mission of the Scottish Attainment Challenge (SAC).
The Scottish Government has committed to this funding as part of the Scottish Attainment Challenge (SAC) programme.
SEF is part of the Attainment Scotland Fund (ASF).
In November 2021, the Cabinet Secretary for Education and Skills set out plans for a refreshed Scottish Attainment Challenge from April 2022. The mission of this refreshed Challenge is: to use education to improve outcomes for children and young people impacted by poverty, with a focus on tackling the poverty-related attainment gap.
This national guidance is intended to support local authorities plan how they will most effectively invest their Strategic Equity Funding allocation to improve the educational outcomes of children and young people affected by poverty.
