In order to deliver our vision of all children in Scotland having an equal chance to flourish, we have identified five priority areas that we are focusing on.

One of these is to ‘lead and develop the children’s sector workforce’.

A key element of this is our learning and events programme, which is tailored to meet the specific needs of the workforce in Scotland.
