“Informed Scotland provides a very valuable service with information on forthcoming Professional Learning events throughout Scotland. There are lots of useful events in their listings that I only found out about through their Calendar.”
– Allan Wilson, Information Officer, CALL Scotland, Moray House School of Education, University of Edinburgh

“Everyone involved in Scottish education should regularly check out the Events Calendar and follow @InformedScot on Twitter. Quite simply, it tells you about everything that’s going on!”
– David Noble, co-founder of Radio EDUtalk

“It’s great to see all that’s happening in learning and development in one place. Thanks to the Calendar I am always up to date with current events and never miss anything.”

Community Learning and Development Regulations Looking forward to 2018-21 @ The Optima, Glasgow
Aug 21 all-day

Education Scotland.

Take part in one of several consultation sessions taking place in August and September which will help to inform updated national guidance on the Requirements for Community Learning and Development (Scotland) Regulations 2013.


These sessions are open to CLD managers, practitioners and stakeholders from across the public and third sector.

The CLD Regulations place legal requirements on local authorities to work with their partners to secure adequate and efficient CLD provision in their area and publish a CLD plan every three years. Guidance for local authorities and their partners was originally published in 2014 and the first round of three-year CLD plans have covered the period 2015-18.

The Aspect Review on Community Learning and Development (CLD) Planning, published in April 2017, recommended that Education Scotland should develop updated guidance to support the next phase of CLD planning from 2018-21 in discussion with the CLD sector. These consultation sessions will be an opportunity to shape the content of that guidance. There will also be an opportunity to submit comments and suggestions online from August.
