The Children and Young People Improvement Collaborative (CYPIC) brings together the Early Years Collaborative (EYC) and the Raising Attainment for All programme to deliver quality improvement throughout the child's journey.
The purpose of the CYPIC is to support schools and services for children, young people and families to be as good as they can be, based on evidence of what works in improving outcomes and life chances.
The CYPIC is closely aligned with the Maternity and Children Quality Improvement Collaborative where the focus is on maternity, neonatal and paediatric healthcare settings.
Quality improvement is strengthening services for children and families. Through using the 3-step Improvement Framework for Scotland's Public Services, quality improvement enables teachers and early years practitioners to test, measure, implement and spread new and better ways of working to make services more effective and responsive to the needs of children and families.
Through a team of Scottish Government improvement advisors, national and local learning sessions, training activities and a quality improvement awards programme (2016), we are supporting local services to test better ways to deliver prevention and early intervention, in line with Public Sector Reform and Getting it right for every child.
There are currently hundreds of quality improvement projects ongoing across the country and many are being delivered in partnership with the voluntary sector. Many areas are spreading proven improvements that have worked across services and some are spreading across local boundaries - for example, better ways of working to help families to access the Healthy Start Scheme and welfare and benefits they are entitled to.
