Encouraging open and honest talk about periods

betty bus appearing at Scottish Learning Festival

The Scottish Learning Festival is an exciting annual conference & exhibition for the teaching profession in Scotland. Co-located with the conference is The Scottish Learning Festival Exhibition. Together, they are now the pivotal events in the education calendar, inspiring better teaching and learning and helping to create a confident teaching profession for the 21st century. It takes place at the SEC in Glasgow and attracts more than 4500 delegates over 2 days (Wednesday 20th and Thursday 21st September 2017)

The Scottish Learning Festival is about teaching and learning and offers a number of invaluable opportunities for the education profession - and this year, for the first time ever, betty for schools will be attending!

betty for schools is a free, PSHE curriculum-linked period education programme for teachers of 8-12 year olds. We aim to create a generation of both boys and girls who feel truly at ease talking about periods. Our online interactive resources have been designed by betty, together with education experts and young people, to encourage open and honest conversations about periods and the way they affect girls.

Schools also have the opportunity to request a visit from the exclusive betty bus, where trained facilitators deliver immersive one hour sessions which help girls deal with their periods and the roller-coaster of emotions that come with them! Whilst the girls are on-board the bus, the boys get to experience a separate workshop focusing on empathy and understanding what girls experience during their period.

Come and say hello and visit our betty bus - we're at the back of the SEC, next to the cafe! - to discover how betty for schools can support period education in your school.

Psst! The exhibition and all the features within it are free to attend, simply register online to attend! Come along on the day and discover all the new innovations, resources, talks and presentations at the SLF exhibition. And of course, come aboard our big yellow bus!

The betty bus will be at the Scottish Learning Festival on Wednesday 20th September and Thursday 21st September at the SEC, Glasgow. Register for your FREE tickets at http://www.slfexhibition.com/
