BOCSH – Developing the Young Workforce
The aim of this publication is to share some of the interesting practice which is currently being developed across learning communities in Scotland. The DYW programme builds on the foundations already in place as part of Curriculum for Excellence and the development of the senior phase in schools.
The case studies contained in this document highlight some of the partnership working already underway between schools, businesses and Colleges as they roll out their approaches to ‘Developing the Young Workforce’ in response to national expectations, how they find their local context and represents work done to date.
Building The Curriculum – Improving Pupils Achievements Through CFE
The purpose of this document is to provide a sustained analysis of how different schools and authorities are using the opportunities provided by Curriculum for Excellence to develop and provide improved learning, skills, achievement, attainment and learner destinations within the Senior Phase. The involvement of all staff, school leaders, local authority leaders and business, industrial, FE/HE and community partners in these major whole-school (and beyond school) processes are also considered. The analyses and accompanying discussions embodied in the nine attached case studies have helped each of the participating authorities and schools to evince their own philosophy, ethos, planning and implementation strategies in relation to using partnership approaches to developing the Senior Phase.
IDL – Improving Pupils Achievements Through CFE
This material is designed as pragmatic advice for effective interdisciplinary learning in schools. It is developed for the particular context of Curriculum for Excellence in Scotland, but it draws from traditions and practices elsewhere. Where it is important, it references research and theoretical context.
It explores the national expectations, specific challenges and opportunities provided by interdisciplinary learning. It provides some case studies of emerging practice in interdisciplinary learning. However, what is interesting is that in looking across the case studies, some deeper lessons about interdisciplinary learning can be identified.
