Book discounts and transport fund – to make your visit more affordable.

Career-long Professional Development
Every year we bring a range of experts to the Festival to take part in events tailored to the needs of professionals working in the field of education.
This year in our Career-long Professional Learning Programme we consider inventive ways to encourage reluctant readers; learn how to stimulate with science; and get creative in the classroom with illustration mentoring and creative writing. We also ask why there is such a large attainment gap between schools in the most deprived areas and the least, and what we can do to close it.
Happy browsing – and we hop to see you in Charlotte Square Gardens in August!
