ADES Association of Directors of
Education in Scotland

Welcome from the Executive Officer!


I am delighted that the new ADES website will soon be fully functional and that we can preview it at this year’s annual conference.  This gives us the ideal opportunity to get your feedback on the new look, as well as your views on its future content and structure.

The site will be launched at the start of January 2018. New features, including the blog, will help us to keep up-to-date with our members, and guests, latest news and development work.

I am confident that the new site will significantly improve the lines of communication among ADES members.
