The Family Learning Framework provides advice for practitioners and support for planning, developing and evaluating family learning at a local level. It is a collaboration between Education Scotland and its partners. In order to close the attainment gap within learning and education, Scotland has recognised the need to make family learning a priority. The ultimate aim of the framework is to allow disadvantaged families and communities to improve their lives and their futures.
The framework incorporates information from the 2016 Review and focuses on four key areas:
- Programme development
- Workforce development
It includes useful infographs and other visuals to facilitate solid understanding of the information presented. The front of the guide discusses the background and purpose of creating the framework, and also explains the meaning of family learning. The end matter also provides added resources, such as an example activity planning and monitoring form and example job profiles, and includes a detailed reading list.
The resource will be most useful for practitioners working in family or community learning.
