What is TeachMeet?



TeachMeet Midlands wouldn't be possible without the

kind support of the companies & organisations below:







Learn something new, be amazed, amused and enthused. This is an informal gathering of those curious about teaching and learning. Anyone can share great ideas they've trialled in their classrooms, ask important questions or simply sign up to take part in learning conversations. Education professionals from all sectors are welcome to take part.


The main part of TeachMeet is hearing stories about learning, from teachers. This is not an event to present about a product or theory - this is a chance for teachers from all types of establishments to hear ideas from each other. Real narratives of practice that make a difference. It is about being engaged and inspired by our immediate colleagues and a whole bucket load of networking to boot!




Other Information


Remember, this is an informal gathering of educational professionals. The event is relaxed in nature; with free food and paid drinks at a late bar. It also offers you a chance to meet other teachers in a fun and welcoming environment.


The free finger buffet will be provided at 5.45pm, courtesy of our sponsors. The bar will be open to purchase drinks throughout the event. After we've finished, the Jubilee Conference Centre bar will stay open for more networking opportunities.
