Who we are

ERA in Glasgow – the Scottish Learning Festival, 20 and 21 September

ERA will be at the Scottish Learning Festival at the SEC in Glasgow later this month, where we will be one of over 200 exhibitors at this annual conference for the teaching profession in Scotland.


The Festival is all about teaching and learning across all sectors and entry is free, though seminar sessions need to be booked in advance to make sure of securing a place. The Keynote address on Wednesday 20 September (the opening day) will be given by John Swinney MSP, Deputy First Minister and Cabinet. Other keynotes will be delivered by Josh Littlejohn MBE, Social entrepreneur and co-founder of Social Bite, and well-known educationalist Steve Munby.

The conference programme can be found here.

The huge range of seminars and workshops means that there is something on offer for everyone and the Festival is a great opportunity to extend your CPD, network with colleagues from other educational establishments and sample the range of exhibits.  This year’s event will also feature the Creative Village, a collaboration between some of Scotland’s leading arts and cultural organisations, and ‘History, Heritage & Archaeology’, a promotion of the Year of History Heritage and Archaeology by a group of companies from the Heritage Education Forum.

The Scottish Learning Festival’s website provides comprehensive information on the event.
