English Subject Interest Group Seminar

As part of our commitment to our partnership schools, we are inviting secondary mentors and other English colleagues to attend this Subject Interest Group (SIG) seminar. The idea behind the SIG is to provide opportunities for professional dialogue and development amongst our peer group supported by external speakers to provide expert input.

June's SIG is focusing on teaching the novel at GCSE. We are delighted that this session will be co-led by the Subject Director for English for the East Midlands Education Trust and James Brown from Nottingham Girls High School. It will include practical teaching strategies as well as some theory and background work. Teachers will leave with more ideas about how to teach the novel in their classrooms.

Refreshments will be available from 4.30pm. The seminar will run from 5pm - 7pm.
