This conference, the first of its kind in Scotland, represents a significant achievement for Character Scotland which, since its inception has made an impact in Scotland reaching out to a wide range of constituencies and key organisations, such as Education Scotland, the General Teaching Council for Scotland and the Scottish Qualifications Authority, amongst others, a credit to the dynamic and committed team behind it. However, what perhaps distinguishes the organisation, as represented within the conference itself, is its wide reach both in geographical terms (national, UK, international) but, more importantly, its extension beyond traditional schooling to encompass the pre-5 sector, further and higher education, the 3rd (charitable) sector, parents’ organisations, policy makers, industry and business, bringing together an eclectic mix of people to the conference. However, true to its ideals, at the forefront of the conference were young people themselves, with the contribution from the Scottish Youth Parliament (SYP) of particular note. All young people presenting at the conference were a credit to themselves, their schools, their families and, more broadly, the nation.
