About the event:
On Monday 17th June, there will be just 401 days before the biggest multi-sport and cultural event ever to come to Scotland opens in Glasgow. That’s less than 58 weeks! Fortunately, education establishment across the country are already preparing to incorporate learning opportunities around the Commonwealth Games in the next academic year and this event is designed to help you join their number.
It will also showcase other inspirational programmes and initiatives available to teachers to stimulate learning around the Commonwealth Games. A variety of engaging workshops delivered by practitioners and organisations experienced in Games Legacy work will provide practical, hands-on exemplification on the impact of the Games as a context for learning. Workshops will include:
• exemplification from primary and secondary schools,
• an outline of the latest curriculum developments in the areas of health and well-being, numeracy and literacy by Education Scotland,
• funding opportunities around food education in the context of the Games,
• international education and partnerships

A number of prominent speakers, including David Grevemberg (CEO, Glasgow 2014) will provide inspirational addresses and testimonies for anyone who seeks to use the Games as a unique opportunity in education.
