Renew, Refresh, Re-imagine! Scottish Learning Festival theme announced

The Scottish Learning Festival is taking place on Tuesday 21 September until Thursday 23 September 2021 and the theme for this year’s event has been confirmed: ‘Renew, Refresh, Re-imagine: Learning from our experiences and looking to the future.’

Each year we try to explore, review and adapt SLF to ensure we bring an event that’s current and inspiring and this year’s conference programme is being carefully developed to reflect the theme. Delegates will be able to enjoy the 3 day conference through a range of live and recorded sessions and find a space to network with colleagues in a fantastic digital arena; a first for SLF!  

SLF is free to attend and the conference programme is developed to support career long professional learning, helping to keep professional practice fresh, up-to-date and relevant. 

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 instructions on 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.
