In 2008, the Scottish Government published A Guide to Getting it right for every child, which explains the approach, especially the Values and Principles, Core Components and the National Practice Model.

This implementation guide builds on the 2008 guide and should be read with reference to it.

This implementation guide shows what needs to be done by people at every level across all agencies and sectors to bring about the changes that are necessary to implement Getting it right for every child. It identifies essential culture, systems and practice changes and sets out what different people in organisations need to do to progress this agenda successfully. It provides strategic managers, operational managers and practitioners with examples of what works in practice gleaned from the experience of pathfinders and learning partners and summarises the features that make for successful implementation.
