Every August, as part of the Baillie Gifford Schools Programme, experts and enthusiasts share their innovative ideas for use across the sector, giving you inspiring new ideas to try out in the classroom.

You can take part in one of our interactive creative writing workshops, or join in discussions on hot topics in education with authors and experts in the field. Events for 2020 will be announced here in April.

Please note: due to the risks surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic, the Edinburgh International Book Festival, including the Baillie Gifford Schools Programme, will not take place in August 2020.
