OECD's pat on the back for Scotland's education

I feel proud of what we get away with have in Scottish education, the relative ease with which we can do certain things on the net, design alternatives in our curricula, escape, if we wish, from what 'has always happened in our school'. In our work at LTS we continue to try to give more autonomy to teachers to get their job done in ever more effective ways. The OECD agrees:

Scotland consistently performs at a very high standard in OECD’s Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) and has one of the most equitable school systems in the OECD. These achievements reflect Scotland’s strong commitment to improvement in education.

Ewan’s education keynotes & MasterClasses

Module Masterclass

Do you worry that your school or district could better harness its people, digital technology or physical space? Do you want some actionable inspiration, a mentor for a learning journey with your staff?

In a keynote or masterclass we can give them concrete ideas based on experience, enthusiasm fired by a vision of what can be, and backup before and after to make it happen for them.
