Mar Hall, in Renfrewshire Scotland

The grandeur of the mountains, the beauty of the rivers and valleys, welcomed IAPAE to the stunning Mar Hall, in Renfrewshire Scotland. The ancestral home of the Earl of Mar set majestically on the banks of the river Clyde was the idyllic setting for our 3rd conference.

We were pleased especially to welcome and honour a delegation from Japan, who made an instant impact with their insight into the communities of practice within a similar set of provision problems in their home in Japan. We had keynote speakers from the USA (Professor Bill Stanhope), Scotland (Mr Alberto Gregori) and Ghana (Dr Emanuel Teye Adjase), all of whom challenged our thinking and pushed us to start to consider the place IAPAE would hold in the international community of educators and how we could make a significant difference.

We were joined by colleagues from NCCPA the national certifying organisation in the USA, and held a special breakfast forum to discuss ways in which we could work together and develop thinking around certification standards. There was a sense of growing and maturing, but the challenge remained to move at scale we needed to engage further and grow the membership of the organisation.
