The Forth Valley & West Lothian Regional Improvement Collaborative was set up in 2017 and covers Falkirk, Stirling, Clackmannanshire and West Lothian Council areas.


The Regional Improvement Collaborative (RIC) seeks to build a collaborative culture that will support teachers in Falkirk, Stirling, Clackmannanshire and West Lothian Council areas to focus learning and teaching on practice that will improve outcomes for children and help close the socio-economic attainment gap.

There are six RICs across Scotland. They were set up to work together across the partnership area to identify and share best practice, identify interventions and learning to support teachers and close the poverty related attainment gap.





The Forth Valley and West Lothian Regional Improvement Collaborative is working to the following common goals:

  • getting the best outcomes for our children and families
  • improving attainment, particularly in literacy and numeracy
  • health and well-being
  • employability skills and positive destinations
