Education show attracts top speakers

The annual SETT show in Glasgow is expected to attract some 5,000 teachers and other education professionals to its annual festival of learning on September 20 and 21 - and The TESS will be there.

For the first time, we are staging a special lecture aimed primarily, but not exclusively, at new and student teachers.

This will take the form of a discussion involving one of Scotland's most experienced headteachers, Gordon Mackenzie of Balwearie High in Kirkcaldy, and Jane Harrison, a newly-qualified teacher who won the George Gray award this year for the best BEd final-year thesis.

Among the leading thinkers and practitioners taking part in the festival will be Dame Marie Stubbs, the Glasgow-born head noted for turning round the London school where headteacher Philip Lawrence was murdered; Terry Dozier, former adviser to the Clinton administration in the US; and Edward de Bono, regarded as the father of "lateral thinking".
