Early Vocabulary and Language Development

Our  Early Vocabulary and Language Sub Group met last week. We have been engaged in a harvesting  of work to share practice across the RIC. Sound bites of initiatives  have also been created to inform practitioners of interventions. Will update with sharing arrangements as soon as these have been finalised.

Welcome to the Forth Valley & West Lothian Regional Improvement Collaborative

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.
