Let’s Prove It!

All providers of services to the public face the common challenge of showing how their activities help to achieve desirable social and economic outcomes, particularly at a time of intense pressure on resources. They need to be able to say more about the difference that they make in the lives of individuals, groups and communities.

Organisations that deliver Community Learning and Development (CLD), in both local government and the voluntary sector, are under special pressure to demonstrate their contribution to shared outcomes.

Policies on what outcomes we should pursue are enshrined at national level in the National Performance Framework and at local level in the Single Outcome Agreements agreed by Community Planning Partnerships.  Communities will have their own views on priorities. But few will disagree with the aspirations enshrined in the national ‘strategic objectives’, to make Scotland:

  • Wealthier and Fairer
  • Smarter
  • Healthier
  • Safer and Stronger
  • Greener.

The ‘Let’s Prove It’  guidance and framework has been prepared by Community Learning and Development Managers Scotland (in consultation with Youthlink Scotland, Learning Link Scotland, Learning and Teaching Scotland, HMIE, and other partners).

It is intended as a contribution to helping CLD practitioners to provide evidence that will help them to improve the outcomes from their services and to gain wider recognition and understanding for these.
