The Early Vocabulary Sub Group met last week to share the work from the CYPIC Language Meets Literacy Practicum. We heard the journey of the West Lothian team who focused on Collaboration for Improvement in Early Intervention and Prevention.
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.
