This report, commissioned by Learning Connections,1 Lifelong Learning Division of the Scottish
Government, provides an overall picture of youth literacies learning in Scotland together with
case studies of effective practice. It complements the 2004 Learning Connections-funded report
Youth Literacies Practice in Scotland: an initial exploration and ‘To the Max’, the 2006 national
collaborative project with YouthLink Scotland.
The report paints a diverse picture of literacies learning and teaching with young people, across
a variety of settings, while highlighting common principles. It also identifies some of the positive
ways in which youth literacies services provide opportunities for young people to engage with
literacies learning, and how this engagement supports them to make important life choices.
We hope that practitioners and managers will be inspired by the case studies to continue to
explore new ways to engage and support young people in literacies learning.
