Route map: Career long professional learning for dyslexia

This professional learning resource from Education Scotland is designed to support learning about and understanding of dyslexia and inclusive practice.

It has been developed in response to the 2014 review ‘Making Sense: Education for Children and Young People with Dyslexia in Scotland’ which recommended that:

“Education Scotland should work with Dyslexia Scotland and other relevant stakeholders to develop a comprehensive dyslexia professional learning package which can be used by local authorities to increase the capacity of teachers to meet learning needs.”

 Aims

 The main aims of the route map are:

  • to support deeper learning and understanding of dyslexia and inclusive practice
  • to inform practitioners about ways in which they might engage in meaningful career-long professional learning in order to improve outcomes for children and young people
  • to encourage all teachers to be familiar with, and make appropriate use of, the Addressing Dyslexia Toolkit
  • to support teachers in achieving professional recognition for areas of enhanced accomplishment in their professional practice.
