Literacy Action Plan, 27/10/10 [S]

The Scottish Government has published an action plan to raise standards of literacy for all from the early years to adulthood.

The plan will build on existing good practice to ensure that literacy will have a central and continuing focus in education and related Government policies. It provides the strategic direction for improving literacy across the Scottish population while each local authority, working with relevant partners will develop local literacy strategies which reflect their own needs.

Key actions include:

  • Vulnerable families to be targeted as part of the Play Talk Read campaign
  • Curriculum for Excellence supporting literacy from a child's early years
  • New National Qualifications to support the development of literacy skills
  • More support for workplace learning

For full details see Literacy Action Plan: An Action Plan to Improve Literacy in Scotland which is available from the Scottish Government website.
