If you’re looking for some professional learning to help beat the January blues, fear not, the Winter Learning Festival for CLD offerings for January and February are here!

Organised by the regional professional learning networks, Education Scotland and CLD Standards Council, the Winter Learning Festival offers an exciting programme of free online learning for those working or volunteering in CLD.

Over the course of October to March, each regional network takes a week and offers a variety of professional learning activities. Activities are open to CLD practitioners across Scotland, so join in and get connecting with others across the country.

There’s still time to catch the final Education Scotland session of this week:

Equalities in CLD – Exploring Quality Indicator 1.2

Thursday 18th Jan at 10am – 11am

This session will include an input from HM Inspectors on How Good is our CLD, focusing on Quality Indicator 1.2 – improvements in equality, diversity and inclusion, with space for questions and discussion.
