Celebrating 20 years of SCoTENS: Hopes, Dreams and Possibilities for Teacher Education


The SCoTENS annual conference has become one of the highlights of our calendar, and we are delighted to announce that the 2023 conference will take place on Thursday 19 and Friday 20 October in the Lough Erne Resort in Fermanagh. In this special year, the 20th anniversary of the establishment of SCoTENS, our conference will be a celebratory one, and inputs will follow a slightly different format than those at previous conferences. 

The format has been designed to facilitate speakers and delegates in reflecting on the last twenty years, celebrating all that has been achieved in teacher education, and looking to the future with hope. The full programme  and a link to registration will be available here shortly. For those who have not yet attended a SCoTENS conference, we invite you to view this short video  including highlights from our 2022 conference, so that you might have a flavour of what to expect!.
