SGA Conference

The SGA Annual Conference will take place on Saturday 28th October 2017, at the Carnegie Conference Centre,  Dunfermline.

Cost is only £90 (£80 for SGA members.)

SGA events are organised by members of the SGA Committee. Organised by teachers for teachers, we aim to provide a range of interesting and practical presentations, designed to refresh the hard working guidance and support staff in our schools.

Our events consistently achieve an extremely high level of positive feedback from our delegates. We also strive to keep costs as low as possible, as we appreciate the difficult financial climate.

Cancellation: In normal circumstances, booking fees cannot be refunded, nor invoices cancelled. However, replacement personnel are welcome. Nevertheless, if you find yourself unable to attend, please notify us in advance (at least one week before the event) so that others on a waiting list may be given your place. Should someone on the waiting list replace you, your fee will be refunded following the event.

Planned speakers to include:

  • Hannah Keates, GIRFEC Policy Team Leader, Scottish Government
  • Gillian MacLean - Alcohol & Drugs Action
  • Jen Kemp, Live-N-Learn - Judging and Labelling Others
