• College Expo18


    CDN’s very first College Expo took place on Wednesday 6 and Thursday 7 June 2018 at Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh. The event was backed by TES and a range of national partners, including EPALE, Google for Education and SQA. Over two days delegates had the chance to participate in over 90 sessions, visit a great range of exhibition stands and experience a variety of interactive indoor and outdoor activities. And we already can’t wait to see what next year brings!

    “Seeing what else is going on elsewhere and making some useful contacts were the two biggest benefits and I believe that all of that new knowledge could be applied to my role/college.”
