‘Principles into Practice’

‘Principles into Practice’ is a draft framework to support the practical implementation of the ‘Principles of Good Transitions’ across Scotland.

It provides a means of addressing the issues young people and their families tell us are most important to them around transitions, and ensuring they receive holistic, person-centred and coordinated support. It draws together current legislation, practice and policy across all sectors.

It has been developed in response to feedback from delegates who attended the ‘Leading the Change, Solving the Transitions Puzzle’ seminar for statutory sector strategic leads and Scottish Government representatives held by ARC Scotland, Social Work Scotland and Association of Directors of Education Scotland in October 2018. One of the recommendations arising from this seminar was:

· Develop a nationally agreed, non-mandatory, framework for transitions.

A second seminar was held to consult in detail on the framework draft on 2nd October 2019. A consultation event for Scottish Transitions Forum members (including voluntary sector partners, health, Further Education and Higher Education representatives) was held on 4th October 2019.

You can download the full Principles into Practice consultation draft document below, or if you prefer you can download it in sections.

The online consultation has now closed – thank you to all those who took part.
