Walbottle Summer Teachmeet 2014


We all want our students' learning to be lively, collaborative and fun! At the same time we want to stretch and support them to achieve their potential. Join us to celebrate a superb range of exciting and engaging teaching and learning ideas and to hear how they are used to drive forward learning at Walbottle.


Every single teacher will have a gem of an idea worth sharing so please get in touch if you are interested in delivering either a formal or an informal presentation. 


A TeachMeet is an informal gathering of like-minded teachers coming together to present and learn from one another's classroom practice, including practical innovations and personal insights in teaching. This is one of the best, informal CPD sessions you will ever attend and you will leave with brilliant, ideas that you can take into your classes the very next day. TeachMeet events are open to all and do not charge an entry fee. For further information on TeachMeets watch this video. This Teachmeet is open to all teachers in the North East, both primary and secondary.
