A treasure kist of Learning & Skills Events

Almost every day we add new learning and skills related conferences, seminars, workshops and exhibitions to our Calendar of events. Most are targeted at specific business or education sectors and professions, however plenty are open to broader groups and some to the wider public – and many are free to attend.

At the time of writing almost 60 events are listed for the rest of March alone. All the events, apart from Radio EDUtalk live broadcasts, are face-to-face. We decided not to attempt to keep track of webinars and other online events… that would be a full-time task!

There are currently events listed through to October taking place in every city and right across Scotland, including Lerwick, Kilmarnock, St Andrews, Cumbernauld and Dalkeith.

Topics are wide-ranging, from music to MOOCs, benchmarking to leadership, technology to sport, finance to food. Each entry includes the organiser, location, a link for more detail and cost where available. More detailed information is included about events run by Informed Scotland subscribers, and those at which they are presenting. Just one of the extra benefits of signing up to our monthly digest – find out more here.

Use the Calendar to find an event to attend, or to find out the dates to avoid for the one you’re organising! There’s no charge for listing. We look out for events to add, or you can email or tweet us the detail so we don’t miss any. And watch out for our ‘Follow Friday’ #ff tweets for the following week’s organisers.

People are finding it a useful service. Here are some recent favourite tweets:
