Literacy Action Plan: An Action Plan to Improve Literacy in Scotland

This report was published in October 2010.

“This action plan signals our commitment to a heightened, more targeted focus for improving literacy skills in Scotland through better co-ordination and partnership working focused on clear objectives.

Improvements cannot be confined to a particular sector or point in a learner’s journey. Literacy development starts from birth. Early years settings and schools develop children and young people’s basic and advanced literacy skills and in adulthood the ongoing development of literacy skills helps to advance personal achievements, employment prospects and participation in society.

Our overarching vision is therefore to raise standards of literacy for all from the early years to adulthood. This will require sustained commitment and continuing action at all levels of government, and through support at all points of the education system and wider public services. There will be a particular focus on those with the lowest levels of literacy.”
