Vision Schools Scotland is seeking to identify the online platform that is shared by most or all of its participating schools. This will provide an alternative to the scheduled face-to-face CPD events and enable us to continue to support teachers in their professional learning. As Vision Schools are from a wide range of councils with different practices and policies, this is particularly challenging.
Vision Schools Scotland additionally deliver face-to-face and online presentations on the value of Holocaust Education and the value of Vision Schools Scotland, to local authorities. We have presented to teachers in North Lanarkshire and West Dunbartonshire and aim to present these to every local authority in Scotland.
