Education Scotland's role in the Scottish Attainment Challenge
Education Scotland is working in partnership with Scottish Government, local authorities and other organisations to deliver the aims of the Scottish Attainment Challenge. The programme is about achieving equity in educational outcomes, ensuring every child has the same opportunity to succeed with a particular focus on closing the poverty-related attainment gap. The Scottish Attainment Challenge is backed by the Attainment Scotland Fund which provides additional targeted funding for local authorities and schools.
Our work includes the development of a network of Attainment Advisors covering every local authority and a range of other specialist support provided to Challenge Authorities and the Schools Programme network. It also includes a universal offer of support to all schools and authorities.
