The 21st and 22nd of September played host to the Scottish Learning Festival 2016 - an exciting event held at Glasgow's SECC that looks to inspire better teaching and learning, and to create a confident teaching profession for the 21st century.
Scotland's Enterprising Schools (SES) was proud to be one of many exhibitors at the event where we launched our new-and-improved website (featuring a Members' Area filled with FREE resources for practitioners). The event also marked the launch of our first set of FREE lesson plans, the Change Challenge: an 8-lesson, cross-curricular enterprise challenge for second, third and fourth level learners.
The two-day event kicked off with a keynote address from the new Cabinet Secretary for Education and Skills John Swinney who described improving attainment as his "clarity of purpose" in his new role.
In the exhibition hall, SES met with hundreds of education professionals from all over Scotland (and beyond!) to show off what we can offer to practitioners, handing out our newly-developed resources and giving delegates the chance to sign up for our new Members' Area.
The stand was visited by Deputy First Minister John Swinney (see above) who discussed the importance of enterprise education with our own Anne Malcolm and Lorraine Ross, and heard all about our brand new website. Mr. Swinney even left with his own SES bag!
If you weren't able to attend the event, you can download the resources we were handing out by signing up for FREE here.
