Teachers Together conference

The University of St Andrews has long recognised the importance of fostering partnerships between secondary schools and higher education institutions to ensure that relevant, accurate and timely guidance is given to all pupils when preparing to study at university.

The conference also provides an opportunity for our staff to hear about subject developments in schools which may influence attainment and achievement levels.

Teachers Together has become a key event in our calendar, bringing together teachers from all sectors of education and has been the catalyst for forming long lasting partnerships.

In previous years, our conferences have been centered on contemporary topics such as sustainability, Curriculum for Excellence, and outreach activities.

Teachers Together is primarily aimed at teachers and advisors in state schools across Scotland as well as our colleagues in further education colleges and hopes to provide an open and relaxed atmosphere in which we can share knowledge and best practice from across the education sector.
