Inclusion Ambassadors: Supporting Effective Transitions

This Inclusion Ambassador resource is a set of reflective questions for adults supporting children as they prepare to leave school.

This Inclusion Ambassadors resource is a set of reflective questions for adults supporting pupils as they prepare to leave school.

The Inclusion Ambassadors first discussed transitions from school across a number of meetings. The topics discussed included:

  • How transitions can make young people feel
  • Skills for independent living
  • Supporting young people’s decisions
  • Asking young people what they need support with

They then met with a representative from the Scottish Government who is working on the Transitions Strategy. They shared their views and helped create a vision statement for the Strategy. This is work that is ongoing and the views of the Inclusion Ambassadors have fed directly into the continuing development of the Transitions Strategy.

A summary of the Inclusion Ambassadors discussions and their recommendations for improving young people’s experiences of leaving school can be found here.

Based on our work with the group, we have developed this reflective questions document. The questions are designed as a prompt to help you reflect on the support you and your school provide for all pupils as they leave school. They should help you think about what you are currently doing and also what you can do to help create the most effective transitions for pupils as they leave school.
