Headteachers' Conference 2014

The recent conference concentrated on the introduction of Curriculum for Excellence and the associated new assessment regime and examined some of the problems being faced by schools across Scotland. 

A report of the conference is now available for download here.

The morning of the conference started with a keynote address by Ewan Aitken (former Councillor, Church of Scotland Minister and COSLA Education Spokesperson). 

This was followed by a number of workshop sessions dealing with matters associated with the new curriculum including assessment, moderation, funding cuts and workload.

In the afternoon there was a question time session on the theme of the new curriculum and assessment arrangements. The panel comprised of:

  • Janet Brown (Chief Executive) SQA
  • Larry Flanagan (General Secretary) EIS
  • Bill Maxwell (Chief Executive) Education Scotland
  • Ken Muir (Chief Executive) GTCS
