Succeed Today, Excel Tomorrow aims to achieve better outcomes for all our children and young people and improve the destination profile of our school leavers. We want to increase the number of young people progressing into Further and Higher Education and ensure more of our young people can move into higher-skilled levels of employment and training – to live, learn and work in the Falkirk Council area.

In order to do this, we need to provide our young people with opportunities which will give them the skills and knowledge they need to succeed. To help us do that need to work more effectively with partners, other council services and across school clusters, invest in our Primary and ASN estate, establish a senior phase curriculum within a Technical & Professional Academy, and ensure we have a world-class digital learning platform. We will also need make sure our workforce feel valued, equipped and motivated for the challenge of making this become a reality.

As part of our core business we will:

  • work in partnership with communities to ensure decisions and services are right for them.
  • form stronger ties with our communities and partners to improve the lives of our most vulnerable.
  • raise aspirations and help everyone live independent and fulfilling lives.
  • ensure children and young people thrive in their education/training.

As part of our recovery, children and young people will be supported to catch up and succeed in learning.
