The Scottish Learning Festival Exhibition is run in conjunction with Education Scotland’s conference which was launched in 2000 and has welcomed over 50,000 delegates since then. Together, they are now the pivotal events in the education calendar, inspiring better teaching and learning and helping to create a confident teaching profession for the 21st century.
The exhibition hosts over 180 suppliers of educational hardware, software, books and magazines furniture/storage equipment, indoor & outdoor equipment, early years resources, special educational needs, sport & physical equipment, school trips, charity educational resources, literacy and numeracy products. It allows staff to view before they buy and to discover what will engage their pupils.
The Scottish Learning Festival Exhibition is for headteachers, senior management, policy makers, librarians, community learning and development staff, youth workers and volunteers from local authorities and third sector organisations, college and careers staff, and practitioners in early years, primary, secondary, further and special education establishments. There are always plenty of pupils too, allowing schools to find out first hand which resources capture their imaginations. The exhibition is free to enter and all are welcome whether or not they are attending a conference session.
The Scottish Learning Festival is open on Wednesday 21 September from 09.00 to 17.00 and Thursday 22 September from 09.00 to 16.00.
