ScotEd2020 is an online professional learning conference which will take place on 19 September 2020.

ScotEd2020’s keynote speaker will be Bruce Robertson, headteacher and author of ‘The Teaching Delusion’, appearing along with a host of practitioners from Early Years and ASN through to ITE. The event is free and is aimed at anyone with an interest in Scottish Education. All presentations will be recorded for anyone unable to attend live. Follow @ScotEd2020 for more information.
