First fully digital Scottish Learning Festival dates announced

Education Scotlandis delighted to announce this year’s Scottish Learning Festival willtake place from Tuesday 21 until Thursday 23 September. For the first time ever the festival will be an entirely virtual event, offering an amazing 3D experience over three days.

Each year we try to explore, review and adapt SLF to ensure we bring an event that’s current and inspiring. This year delegates will be able to enjoy the ever popular conference programme through a range of live and recorded sessions, take a tour around the exhibition area and find a space to network with colleagues in a fantastic digital arena - all from their own device.

SLF is free to attend and the conference programme is carefully developed to support career long professional learning, helping to keep professional practice fresh, up-to-date and relevant.  Delegates can also find opportunities to discover innovative practice, new resources and exchange knowledge and ideas with other professional colleagues and experts. 

HM Chief Inspector for Education and Chief Executive of Education Scotland, Gayle Gorman said: “I’m delighted the Scottish Learning Festival is back. It’s been a difficult year but the Education community has shown an incredible amount of resilience. This year’s SLF is a perfect opportunity for us all to reflect, discuss, network and be inspired. I also hope it will allow lots of you who found it difficult to join a physical event, the chance to get involved.”

Further details and instruction of how to register will be announced soon. In the meantime please save the date in your diary; Tuesday 21 September until Thursday 23 September 2021.
