Education Scotland – Revised Significant Aspects of Learning


CaptureYesterday the Literacy and English team at Education Scotland released their revised professional learning paper and progression framework as part of the Assessing Progress and Achievement resource.

There are three significant aspects of learning (SALs) in Literacy and English.

  • Listening and talking
  • Reading
  • Writing

Although teaching and learning will often take place across more than one significant aspect of learning, a learner may achieve a level in listening and talking or reading or writing. Progress and achievement within these three significant aspects of learning in literacy and English will be evidenced as children and young people achieve across these key themes:

  • engage with a broad range of increasingly complex texts, including Scottish and Scots texts
  • develop and apply knowledge and understanding of language
  • find, use and organise information, including developing critical literacy skills
  • use reading and listening strategies to understand, analyse and evaluate texts
  • create texts of increasing complexity using more sophisticated language.

The relevant changes to The Highland Literacy Progression – Steps to Success will be made in due course to reflect the changes at National Level.
