Education Scotland is once again delighted to host Scotland’s biggest education event, the Scottish Learning Festival (SLF).
Over the years, we have welcomed thousands of education practitioners from across Scotland and beyond, and we look forward to welcoming many more this year.
As an organisation, we’ve been making changes to how we work to ensure we support improvement at national, regional and local levels. Our Corporate Plan, which we launched this year, sets out our vision of achieving excellence and equity for Scotland’s learners with Scotland’s educators. In doing this, we will work more closely with our partners across sectors.
The Scottish Learning Festival provides us with a valuable and unique opportunity to work collaboratively with a range of partners, practitioners and stakeholders to showcase the excellent work that is happening in Scottish education today. We’re always listening and want to continue to improve SLF to ensure it is an inspirational and important event in the education calendar.
Following feedback from the education community, we’ve introduced a range of ‘Twilight sessions’ to allow those who can’t make it along during the day to attend later. We have also improved our online presence to allow participation remotely and allow stakeholders to catch-up on sessions at a time that suits them. Planning for future years is underway and a key aim is to ensure SLF continues to increase its accessibility to practitioners across Scotland.
I’m confident SLF 2019 will once again provide high quality professional learning for practitioners across all sectors and will provide a fantastic opportunity to engage collaboratively with colleagues and a diverse range of experts.
