    I am subject leader for Art& Design in Midlothian. I am organizing an Inservice on Monday 24th October. I was wondering if you know anyone who would be interested in giving a short presentation on for example National 4 or 5, Assessment and Reporting or subject specific topic relating to Art & Design. Any suggestions or help would be much appreciated! I can be contacted on 0131 663 7171 or email.
