Scotland wants to create a joined-up learning journey for everyone – from age 0 to 80! This is at the heart of the Scottish Government’s strategy for the learning estate. This means thinking differently about the places we learn in. There needs to be equity, with spaces that support excellence.

We need to:

  • Make more of the space we already have
  • Empower pupils and teachers to shape future spaces
  • Explore new ways of doing things

Architecture and Design Scotland works with schools across the country. Our focus is to help explore and test ideas for new and existing spaces. The process gives the learner a sense of ownership and makes the most of the spaces we already have. This exhibition showcases the learner journey from four schools. It features the Tests of Change process which uses high impact/low-cost, sustainable interventions any school can use to improve their learning and teaching environments. The Tests of Change process builds on the ‘Inspiring Learning Spaces’ initiative delivered by the Scottish Futures Trust and funded by the Scottish Government.
