Learning & skills events

Find out about learning and skills conferences, seminars and exhibitions taking place across Scotland in the coming months.


“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

Taking Pride in Teaching LGBTI+ Young People

STEM Workshop @ Youth Scotland, Edinburgh
Jan 25 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Introduction to Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) @ SCQF, Glasgow
Jan 30 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

The SCQF Partnership

A half day taster session aimed at anyone wishing to recognise the skills and experience that people pick up through formal or informal learning, life experiences and work.

The recognition process can be worked through with anyone of any age to build confidence or simply let them know where they are.

This workshop would be extremely useful for employers to enable them to recognise what skills their staff already have and identify any skills gap that they need to fill.

An ideal overview for those with no prior knowledge of RPL.

Computing Conference 2020 @ Stirling Court Hotel
Feb 5 all-day

Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA)

The conference will combine vocational and academic qualifications, so it will cover the full suite of Computing awards ranging from Nationals to HNDs.

The event will be a mix of keynotes, workshops and demonstrations. We’ve already thought about the workshops, which will likely include the new materials for NPA Cyber Security, introduce NPA Data Science and HND Cyber Security, and workshops about National Qualifications. The Keynote (still to be decided) will focus on an emerging field of computer science.
