ACEs NHS Education for Scotland - Trauma Framework The NHS Education for Scotland (NES) have developed a Transforming Psychological Trauma Knowledge and Skills Framework. You can read the Training Framework and Executive Summary to find out more about the Scottish Government's commitment to developing a National Trauma Training Strategy as outlined in the Survivor Scotland Strategic Outcomes and Priorities (2015–2017) publication, through increasing the understanding of trauma and adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) across the Scottish workforce. Further to this, there has been investment from the Scottish Government to support trauma training for the Scottish workforce and the animation below, Opening Doors: Trauma Informed Practice for the Workforce, aims to support workers to know how to adapt the way they work to make a positive difference to people affected by trauma and adversity. Further, the NES have been doing specific investigation into the effect of ACEs on the attainment gap for children attending school in Scotland. This document looks at how various agencies, and the use of the Pupil Equity Fund (PEF), can prevent and respond to this.
