This year's theme invites colleagues to consider the connections and the contradictions between language, literacy and class. At a time when austerity is increasingly becoming one of the social norms and consequently widening divisions become more evident in society, this conference will explore the impact of these changes on literacy education - both the connections and the contradictions, the problems and the innovations.

Opening address: John Swinney MSP, Deputy First Minister and Cabinet Secretary for Education and Skills for Scotland
