The West Partnership is a collaboration of eight local authorities across the West of Scotland: East Dunbartonshire, East Renfrewshire, Glasgow City, Inverclyde, North Lanarkshire, Renfrewshire, South Lanarkshire, and West Dunbartonshire.
35% of Scotland’s school population attend a West Partnership school. There are over 1000 nurseries, primary, secondary and special schools in the West Partnership, serving mainly urban but also many rural communities.
Our workstreams for 2020–2023 complement our vision with Equity, Excellence and Empowerment as the core purposes of our work. These are outlined in our ‘Workstreams’ tab and are detailed further in our Regional Improvement Plan.
Equity, Excellence and Empowerment encapsulate the culture we want to embed, enhancing the work of each local authority to bring about improvement in our schools and outcomes for our learners.
We will build on existing practice to build a learning system that will bring about Equity, Excellence and Empowerment. This system will promote a culture of learning and bring about improvement at all levels from the classroom to directorate. We will facilitate collaboration which will promote, allow and scaffold learning and challenge partners.
Our workstreams complement our vision with Equity, Excellence and Empowerment as the core purposes of our work. These are outlined in our ‘Workstreams’ tab and are detailed further in our Regional Improvement Plan.
Our Regional Improvement Plan sets out the aims and actions that will be delivered collaboratively across the eight partner authorities.
We have carried out an evaluation of 2021/22 Regional Improvement Plan which allowed us to formally reflect on progress and review and refine the priorities for improvement in 2022/23.
