UPCOMING EVENT – Scotland 2030: Leadership in Education

Thursday 30 January 2020, 6pm, at the Scottish Parliament

Join Scotland’s Futures Forum and the Goodison Group in Scotland as they continue their exploration of education in the future with the second of two events on leadership in education.

The events bring together leading figures from education for interactive workshops to explore the future in a safe space. The workshops will explore the scenario that the Goodison Group and Futures Forum have been developing, focusing on how it might be realised through leadership in the education system.

The workshop will use innovative change leadership approaches facilitated by Kenneth Hogg, Director, Scottish Government, and Valerie Jackman, Leadership Lead, College Development Network. It is open to anyone with an interest in the future of Scottish education.

Over the past three years, the Goodison Group in Scotland and Scotland’s Futures Forum have been examining the future of schooling, education and learning in future Scotland.

Through the project, we have considered some of the macro environmental factors and trends that may influence or disrupt schooling and education in the future, including technological innovation and demographic change.

The draft scenario is our focus for these sessions when considering leadership of change. In these sessions we are moving our discussions on from the ‘what’ future schooling and education might look like to the ‘how’ we might make it happen.
