This progression framework has been developed in partnership with practitioners from all over Scotland and uses meta-skills illustrations outlined in ‘Skills 4.0 – A skills model to drive Scotland’s future’.

It is provided as a guide to support practitioners in evaluating the process of learner's meta-skills development across CfE levels.

Within each of the tables there are examples of what the development of each of the meta-skills may look like for learners across from early years through to senior phase. The examples given are not exhaustive and are provided as a starting point to support understanding.
