                              Nursery Sectoral Day

                              Glasgow City Centre

                                    13 June 2016

Who is it for?    If you lead a nursery or have a nursery class in your school then you may want to attend.

How much?       There is no charge for this event.  We will even pay your travel expenses.  (Places are restricted.)

AHDS runs sectoral meetings for different parts of the membership from time to time.  These events offer a chance to hear about and engage with the latest developments as well as to raise and discuss issues of common concern with peers from around Scotland.  On Monday 13 June we will run one of these events for members with a focus on the nursery years.  There will be two core themes for the day:

–          Professional Learning – Early Learning Leadership:  SCEL has been asked by the Scottish   Government to undertake a scoping exercise to identify any potential gaps in learning provision for Primary Head Teachers who have nursery and P1 classes, including theories of attachment and the importance of attachment for young children’s development.  SCEL will lead a session with members to explain the work they will be doing and to give members an opportunity to influence the development of this important piece of work.

–          The Government’s Early Years commitments:  The newly re-elected Scottish Government made a series of education commitments which will have an impact on early learning provision across a range of settings.  We want to explore these commitments with members to understand your hopes and concerns in relation to the implementation of these commitments.

We also want this day to be about discussion of other key themes for the sector.  At the time of booking you will have an opportunity to tell us about any issues or themes you would like to see on the agenda and will build the plan for the day from there.

All our sector meetings are FREE to attend and for AHDS members only.
Travel expenses to this event are reimbursed. To book please complete
the form.
