Annual SELMAS Conference

Written by  Tuesday, 27 October 2015 10:00

SELMAS is an independent organisation, run by a committee of interested individuals from a wide range of educational backgrounds and experience. Through their annual conference and other leadership events, they offer opportunities for challenging, open, tolerant professional discussion on educational leadership issues with colleagues. 

 

SELMAS has chosen an auspicious date (Friday 13th November) and the historic setting of The Caves in Edinburgh for its 2015 annual conference which addresses the theme of equity and education. Once the venue for the famous “Oyster Club” of the Enlightenment, frequented by Adam Smith and other such luminaries, the UNESCO protected world heritage site is the ideal location for an honest and open debate around aspects of improving equity of ambition and achievement in education. 

 

Speakers include: Angela Constance, Professor Walter Humes, Jim McColl, Gerry Lyons, Carol Craig and discussants Danny Murphy and Margaret Alcorn.

 

Tickets are £80 and can be purchased via their Eventbrite page.
