Abstract

This paper analyses children’s sector policy and the 2011Teaching Scotland’s Future Report of a review of teacher education in Scotland report with the aim of distinguishing their coherence and extent of disconnect. Overarching children’s services policies which stress examine the ways in which co-working is constituted in the report, with the conclusion that co-working is conceptualised in a limited way, not connecting with wider policies. Issues in danger of being marginalised are then considered, and a number of suggestions made concerning how to (re)connect policy rhetoric relating to co-work with action to prepare practitioners across the sector with the knowledge and skills needed to work together. The method is document review.
