Scottish Learning Festival - Happy birthday

18th September 2009 at 01:00

Ten years of the Scottish Learning Festival and there's a lot to celebrate. It started as Fusion 2000, a one-day event on information technology which attracted 1,200 teachers. In 2001, its title changed to SETT (Scottish Education and Teaching Technology) by analogy with the London BETT show and it ran over two days. In 2006, it became the learning festival, as its remit expanded to embrace the whole of education. Today, it attracts over 7,000 visitors and it's the biggest, most important CPD event of the year. The overarching theme is A Curriculum for Excellence and a key focus is how Glow is now delivering it. The Scottish Government continues to subsidise the event, so it remains free to all teachers; Learning and Teaching Scotland continues to organise it; and TESS continues to sponsor it.
