Update

As part of our organisational response to the COVID-19 virus, Children in Scotland has adapted our training and events programme to a digital webinar format for the foreseeable future.

Our webinar programme can be found here and will be updated regularly.

We may be running some of our scheduled events as abbreviated webinar versions, while others have to be cancelled or postponed until face-to-face training is possible again. Please keep an eye on our website, social media channels and Eventbrite page for updates.

If you've already booked onto any face-to-face training between now and later this year, please note that our Learning and Events team will be in touch with you should the arrangements change.

Our office is currently closed and staff will be working from home – you can contact the team using this email: events@childreninscotland.org.uk.
