What is a TeachMeet?


A TeachMeet is an informal gathering of like-minded teachers learning from each other.



Participants volunteer to present and demonstrate an element of good practice or to discuss a product that enhances learning.    

TeachMeet events are open and is free



This event is for both primary and secondary teachers as most topics will be generic







The theme is #PowertoPedagogy. The aim of our TeachMeet is to share powerful ideas that teachers are able to take back to their classrooms and colleagues in their schools.
