The Pupil Inclusion Network Scotland (PINS) is funded by Scottish Government, with a membership of 1400 practitioners, around half of whom work in the third sector, and often with the most vulnerable and marginalised learners when it comes to formal or informal learning or support for schooling.
The network operates online, and focuses on educational inclusion, equalities, attainment, health and wellbeing, with interests ranging from early years through to post-school learning.
PINS membership is free via the PINS website. Members receive the monthly e-newsletter, highlighting news, articles, publications and events of interest to those working in pupil inclusion.
The network also offers the opportunity to access useful information and connections, as well as promoting practice and highlighting key practice issues, including their “10 Things We Do To Make A Difference” article. Additionally, the PINS blog highlights policy and practice challenges, and provides members with the opportunity to ask difficult questions.
