Our Staffroom Chats

Staffroom Chats are a series of brief (up to an hour), drop-in conversations hosted online for teachers, they are a casual and social space where we focus on a different issue or topic each week. In connecting with other teachers from schools across the country we hope to support each other, share our experiences both good and bad, and ultimately elevate our teaching practice at a time when we may be feeling constrained, intimidated or a little lost.
