The Ada Scotland Festival 2023 ran from the 2 to 13 October engaging over 4000 participants from schools, higher and further education, job changers and industry. Our partners hosted 5 online sessions and 17 in-person events in Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow. Our 2023 launch event was hosted by Barclays at their Glasgow Campus with 100 high school students attending. A full afternoon of activities was also supported by the team at My World of Work
What next?
We will be back in October 2024 with dates TBC. In the meantime, with the support of our brilliant partners we are looking to run mini festivals in the Highlands and Borders to enhance our reach and engagement with a strong focus on schools.
