A message from our Parent Council
Exploring the Four Capacities
Exploring The Four Capacities is a thought paper, commissioned by Education Scotland and prepared by NoTosh, compiling the views of over 150 educators and over 600 learners from across Scotland’s education system.
It offers insights to help inform the National Discussion on Education and to stimulate your own exploration of the four capacities. The paper will be useful to all educators and settings exploring curriculum rationale and curriculum design.
