Achieving

38

Our aim is to improve attainment and achievement outcomes for all young people by promoting high expectations and raising aspirations. Our approach is to provide learning experiences across care and education which are engaging, enjoyable, motivating and challenging.  We believe that by embracing the the values and principles of both the Curriculum for Excellence and GIRFEC as our practice models, we are able to support our young people to achieve across the 4 capacities.

We consider that by fostering a spirit of partnership amongst young people, staff, stakeholders, parents, other educational establishments, and the local/wider community, we increase the opportunity for improvements in attainment and achievement and enable our young people to experience success. We offer our young people a range of NQs, wider Achievement Awards and learning opportunities across Care and Education.

We help our young people to re-engage in the education process and to achieve their full potential in each aspect of their development - educational, personal, social, emotional, physical and behavioural. We support and encourage young people to have aspirations for the future and ensure that they move on to positive destinations.

At the point of transition we liaise with Local Authorities to ensure that each young person’s educational needs and interests will be met following their move back into the community.
