OECD's pat on the back for Scotland's education

I feel proud of what we get away with have in Scottish education, the relative ease with which we can do certain things on the net, design alternatives in our curricula, escape, if we wish, from what 'has always happened in our school'. In our work at LTS we continue to try to give more autonomy to teachers to get their job done in ever more effective ways. The OECD agrees:

Scotland consistently performs at a very high standard in OECD’s Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) and has one of the most equitable school systems in the OECD. These achievements reflect Scotland’s strong commitment to improvement in education.

Module Masterclass

School leaders and innovators struggle to make the most of educators' and students' potential. My team at NoTosh cut the time and cost of making significant change in physical spaces, digital and curricular innovation programmes. We work long term to help make that change last, even as educators come and go.
