Dyslexia Scotland has been recognised as highly commended, in the Community Learning and Development (CLD) Award category in the Daily Record and Education Scotland Learning for Sustainability Awards 2021.
Learning for Sustainability (LfS) is a theme across learning within Scotland which enables learners, educators, education settings and their wider communities to build a socially-just, sustainable and equitable society.
LfS supports the development of knowledge, skills and values at the heart of Curriculum for Excellence's four capacities and supports engagement with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
The Awards recognise the amazing achievements of Scotland’s people and the learning settings and communities that have demonstrated passion and commitment to building a socially-just, sustainable and equitable world.
Dyslexia Scotland Chief Executive Cathy Magee said, "We are honoured to receive this commendation. Championing a socially-just world that values the talents and abilities of dyslexic people is core to our work. We'll display our certificate with pride."
The commendation recognises Dyslexia Scotland's work with children, young people, adults, professionals and communities, to create a more inclusive Scotland where people with dyslexia are able to reach their potential in life, learning and work.
