Education Forum February 2024

Year: 2024
Topic: Education
Author: CELCIS

At this meeting of the Education Forum we came together to learn more about a partnership project called the Keeping The Promise Award Programme, which was originally developed by North Lanarkshire Council as a professional learning resource in response to The Promise. The West Partnership Promise Working Group, Education Scotland and CELCIS have since updated the original resources to create an accessible professional learning resource for all local authorities in Scotland.

Designed to support anyone working with children and young people, the programme:

  • Addresses what we can do in our everyday practice to keep to these commitments.
  • Provides a baseline knowledge about The Promise, corporate parenting, and care experience, while promoting non-stigmatising language throughout.
  • Helps us to understand what all children and young people need and how we, the adults who work with and for them, can best support them.
  • Looks at the simple things that all adults can do to provide help and support for children and young people.  

At this Education Forum meeting, attendees heard from Janine McCullough, a Senior Education Officer at Education Scotland, who shared information about the Keeping The Promise Award programme and taking part.
