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.
For more on staffroom chats and to find out about the next one, please subscribe to our mailing list.
Our Teacher Mailer
In our fortnightly Teacher/Staffroom Mailer we will focus on you, the teachers and management in schools. We will share resources & CPD ideas, advertise opportunities for you to collaborate with teachers in other schools, and build on our community of practice so we can all support each other over the coming academic year.
