Test of change for Regional Improvement Collaborative

The Northern Alliance – striving to embed best practice across Aberdeen City, Aberdeenshire, Argyll and Bute, Eilean Siar (Western Isles), Highland, Moray, Orkney Islands and Shetland Islands – was in itself a test of change as the first regional improvement collaborative, before these were fully established across the country in 2017, and is now in the second year of its Phase 3 Regional Improvement Plan. Its workstream priorities remain aligned to the National Improvement Framework (NIF) and have been developed collaboratively with local authority practitioners and national partners. But the way Northern Alliance officers carry out improvement activity has had to change significantly during the last 14 months.

Putting a science festival online

This blog has been shared by Howie Firth, Director of Orkney International Science Festival. The Northern Alliance recognises the importance of STEM learning for children and young people and the benefit of strong links with our industries and communities. The festival will deliver a whole host of opportunities for schools and settings as well as families and individuals to engage with.
