Histoire administrative

The Association of Directors of Education in Scotland was formed in 1920 to represent the directors appointed by the new ad hoc education authorities. Throughout its history, ADES has played an important role in advising upon and implementing the educational policies of successive governments and local education authorities. It seeks to promote awareness of and make national representation on educational issues and to promote the professional interests of its members. The Association conducts its business through an executive and standing committees, and through organising conferences and debates.
