Scotdec is a Global Education Centre based in central Edinburgh and working in Edinburgh and the Lothians, Scottish Borders, Clackmannanshire, Stirling and Falkirk. There are five other centres in Scotland based in Glasgow, Coatbridge, Dundee, Dingwall and Aberdeen and we work together as the Consortium of Global Learning Centres.
Scotdec (Scottish Development Education Centre) has been in existence since 1984. Originally known as the Multi-Agency Centre (MAC), it was registered as a charity in 1990 and incorporated as a Company Limited by Guarantee in 1999. As well as building a reputation for promoting and distributing development education materials, over the past years we have also produced and published a number of popular resources.
Scotdec has implemented and been partners in a number of innovative projects over the years.
We are members of IDEAS (International Development Education Association of Scotland) a network of over 40 organisations and individuals involved in Development Education and Education for Global Citizenship across Scotland.
