Sign-up now for ACTS’ 2013 National Education Conference

National Education Conference: Progress through Professionalism

Saturday, 2nd February 2013, from 9.30am – 3.30pm

Stirling Management Centre, University of Stirling


An essential conference for professionals with an interest in Scottish education, including: teachers, teacher educators, policy makers, and leaders from schools and local authorities.

The quality of teaching and learning experiences is known to have the greatest impact on the achievement of our young people. Curriculum for Excellence, the Donaldson Report, new Professional Standards, and other significant national developments … in a changing climate across Scotland’s learning landscape, how can these transformational elements best be developed?

Featuring invigorating debates, stimulating challenges and thought-provoking speakers, this conference will enable up to two hundred delegates to engage deeply, practically and creatively with current thinking, developments and opportunities. Participants can contribute to sharply-focused learning conversations, experience motivating presentations and contributions from key individuals and agencies in Scotland, and choose from a variety of relevant workshops.

The main keynote speaker, Professor Sir Tim Brighouse, will bring lessons from beyond Scotland, particularly from the London Challenge, with an emphasis on CPD and strategies for developing teacher professionalism.

Lunch and refreshments are included.
