Journey to Excellence

Learning and teaching

Play Controls

Learning and teaching is the core business of schools and other centres of learning.

Schools must ensure that children and young people have the highest quality learning experiences. A clear focus on outcomes for young people is essential, with lesson and programme planning that helps learners achieve to their fullest extent.

These learning and teaching aims lie at the very heart of Curriculum for Excellence.
