Event description

Description

The Growing Up In Scotland study has been tracking the lives of thousands of children for over a decade, producing great research and fascinating findings.

This year the Annual Conference will take place at Edinburgh's Royal College of Physicians. Please join us for lively discussion of this year's findings as well as to hear about future plans for the survey and new and emerging analysis of GUS data.

Speakers will include Maree Todd, Minister for Childcare and Early Years, representatives from the Scottish Government, researchers who are using GUS data, and of course, the GUS team itself.

The event will be chaired by Alan Sinclair. Alan is a former Director of Skills for Scottish Enterprise and has spent time at the Centre for Confidence and Wellbeing, as well as the Work Foundation.
