English hub schools network
These meetings offer great networking opportunities and also address teacher needs and relevant themes each term. Come along to discuss strategies, best practice, share resources and exchange experiences with your local English community.
Autumn 2018: GCSE English Literature
In these sessions we'll explore the concept of cultural capital, and explore cultural allusions within the GCSE English Literature texts. We'll work through a case study of how some teachers have approached this in their own planning, leaving you with some new ideas to bring to the classroom.
Autumn 2018: A-level English Literature
In these sessions we'll explore approaches to non-exam assessment (NEA) for A-level English Literature A and A-level English Literature B. We'll consider ethos and key aspects of delivery.
We'll cover A-level English Literature A in the first half of meeting, and A-level English Literature B in the second half.
We also offer a range of professional development and training courses to help you teach our specifications. Browse our current courses
