English local networking hubs

These free, local sessions are a practical way to enhance your teaching. Come along to network with other English teachers, exchange ideas and share best practice.

  An audience of teachers

Run every term by AQA English specialists, our local networking hubs aim to improve your understanding of the specification – and are the ideal opportunity to meet other English Language and Literature teachers and share ideas to support your teaching.

GCSE English language and literature local networking hubs – spring 2020

Empowering students through vocabulary: part two – writing

This session is the second in a series exploring the issue of the 'word gap' and the wider importance of vocabulary in students' development. While focusing on writing, we'll explore the key vocabulary skills students need and consider a range of teaching and learning approaches to support this.

Our summer 2020 networking hubs will further this by focusing on spoken language.
