Digital skills & Widening access: Exploring two hot topics

Informed Scotland is delighted to be supporting two MacKay Hannah conferences examining important themes for learning and skills.

On 9 December we’ll be exhibiting at the Digital & ICT Skills in Scottish Education conference in Linlithgow. The emphasis will be on tackling the digital and ICT skills gap and the sector Skills Investment Plan published earlier this year. 

A great line-up includes speakers from the Scottish Government, City of Edinburgh Council, Skills Development Scotland, Oracle, ScotlandIS, e-skills UK, CGI and SCVO.

On 11 December we’ll have a stand at the Poverty & Attainment in Education conference in Edinburgh. The focus will be on closing the attainment gap in schools, with professionals sharing best practice and discussing how to ensure equality in attainment for young people. The programme is packed with influential presenters, including speakers from the Scottish Government, Education Scotland, Scottish College for Educational Leadership, City of Edinburgh Council, Joseph Rowntree Foundation, University of Strathclyde and Barnardo’s Scotland.

We’re  working on an Informed Scotland Wider Access, Higher Attainment Special for delegates and subscribers, to highlight the breadth of relevant learning and skills activity across the landscape. More on that later…
