English hub schools network
Join your local community of teaching colleagues, our experts and subject associates.
In this video, watch how a local hub meeting inspired a department and changed a teacher’s career.
Come along to discuss strategies, best practice, share resources and exchange experiences with your local English teaching community.
Summer 2019: GCSE English Literature
Our English advocates will facilitate these meetings to encourage discussion and the sharing of ideas.
This session will explore different approaches to choosing the right texts for your class, with particular focus on paper 2. We will consider the motivations for teaching particular texts, including case studies from teachers who have introduced new texts to their schools.
Please note that these are not training events and they do not count as CPD. These events are for networking, keeping up to date and sharing best practice with fellow teachers.
We also offer a range of professional development and training courses to help you teach our specifications. Browse our current courses
