The Educational Colloquium and Continuing Professional Development Programme 2018/19

The Educational Colloquium of the Universities of Glasgow, Strathclyde, and the West of Scotland invites you to participate in a series of presentations/workshops/ discussions in our new winter programme.  The programme (See details below) is designed for individuals from all sectors – nurseries, schools, colleges, universities with an interest in topical subjects in education and related disciplines.  We think it represents the best value CPD in Scotland.  The Colloquium is a registered CPD provider and the full programme counts as 10 hours of CPD, 2 hours per meeting.  CPD certificates are available at all meetings.  If you would like to find out what it is like and meet a great group of people just come along to a meeting, without charge…and bring a friend!   We start all meetings with a little free hospitality and you will be made most welcome…and we will gently encourage you to join the Colloquium.  

You can join by just coming along to a meeting or by contacting Margaret McFarlane at the e-mail address below.

The regular meetings will be held in The School of Education, University of Glasgow, St Andrew’s Building, 11 Eldon Street, on the first Thursday of every month at 5:30 for 6:00pm
