A report has been released highlighting the impact of the Raising Aspirations in Science Education (RAiSE) programme in 2021/22.

Laura McCafferty, National Education Officer:

“Our newest cohort of authorities are already having a measurable impact in schools. We are proud of the work done by our recently exited authorities in laying the foundations for strategically changing the face of STEM learning in their areas. And we are delighted to continue engaging our legacy authorities and seeing what they have continued to embed and grow regionally and nationally.”

In 2021/22, RAiSE delivered 4455 professional learning hours and 372 professional learning opportunities.

Twenty of Scotland’s local authorities had engaged in the investment by July 2022.

RAiSE is a programme of The Wood Foundation, Scottish Government, Education Scotland, and participating local authorities to empower primary practitioners with the skills, confidence, and networks to develop and deliver engaging and motivating STEM experiences.
