Education Scotland is offering the opportunity to join them for a 4-day study visit; 2 days of seminar sessions, professional dialogue and school visits, followed by 2 days at the Scottish Learning Festival 2016. This professional networking and dialogue will help build contacts for future work.
They have designed a 2–day initial programme which enables visitors to learn from their experience of curriculum reform and stimulating change in school improvement.
Participants will find out more about Scottish policy and practice, their approaches to quality assurance, school improvement and evaluation, hosted and delivered by staff who worked through these change programmes. The delivery team will include strategic managers, members of Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of schools and colleges, and curriculum development staff. The cost of the symposium is £300 per person.
