“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.”
– Allan Lloyds, Founder, Product Forge
