Heritage Hunters: Supporting Child-led Heritage

Children in Scotland has launched a new resource, aimed at supporting practitioners working with young people, with a particular focus on the area of heritage.

This is based on our own principles and practices, developed through our work, including our Heritage Hunters project. However, the principles are applicable to all engagement work with children and young people.

It supports Curriculum for Excellence’s curriculum areas including Social Studies and in particular Health And Wellbeing: developing self-awareness, self-worth, respect for others and emotional/social and mental wellbeing. It also supports young people to become Responsible Citizens, one of the Four Capacities (see below) of the Scottish Curriculum.

The resource also aligns with one of our priorities; to support the workforce to be more skilled, knowledgeable and better placed to deliver improved outcomes for all children. We are happy to share our own experiences and learning to achieve this.
