Lunchtime Improvement Clinics

On both days there will be the opportunity to discuss an aspect of your project with an Improvement Advisor. When you arrive at the event you may wish to book a 10 minute slot to be guaranteed time for a conversation or simply drop by one of the improvement stations to see and hear what is going on.

Storyboard Reception

Directly following the final plenary on day 1 we are offering delegates the opportunity to join us for a reception and storyboard viewing. Please sign up for this opportunity to network with colleagues and hear more about improvement activity progressing in a number of schools. This is a great opportunity to hear from your colleagues as they share their progressing work. The reception and walk round session will be finished by 6pm allowing you time to freshen up prior to the networking dinner in the Crown Plaza at 19:30.

Conference Dinner

A conference dinner with a Year of Food & Drink Scotland 2015 theme and quiz will take place on the evening of Monday 16th March from 7.30pm in the Crowne Plaza Hotel, next door to the SECC. Please note that places are limited and therefore we recommend that you book early.
