About the event
The Scottish Learning Festival (SLF) is the annual conference and exhibition for the teaching profession in Scotland.
The SLF is free and includes:
- a conference programme with keynotes and seminars where you can engage in activities and learn from inspirational speakers and practitioners
- a large exhibition of over 200 organisations
- opportunities for discussion and professional networking with peers and colleagues from across Scotland.
The exhibition is for headteachers, senior management, policy makers, librarians, community learning and development staff, youth workers and volunteers from local authorities and third sector organisations, college and careers staff, and practitioners in early years, primary, secondary, further and special education establishments.
Visit us at our stand
Come and visit our stand (B80) to see our new resources for early years workers and those thinking about a career in early years.
Free learning resources for early years workers
Our free digital resources will support the workforce at a time of major expansion with recruitment of thousands of new workers to meet the Scottish Government’s commitment to increase free provision to 1,140 hours by 2020.
The interactive resources support practitioners’ knowledge and understanding of observing children, child development and mentoring.
Thinking of a career in childcare?
Our childcare careers website shows how you can build a career in day care of children, which includes early learning and childcare (ELC), out of school care, childminding and other services where children are cared for during the day.
The easy to use website explains:
- how the recent increase of funded ELC entitlement has created 11,000 more job opportunities between now and 2020
- the diversity of career paths, shown through the career stories of current childcare professionals
- the different ways to gain experience and qualifications
- how to access learning resources and training providers.
Working with children is fun, interesting and an opportunity to make a significant difference. If you’re interested in this career we hope the website will help you take your first steps.
