Teacher Forums

Our teacher forums are a recent addition to our CPD programme and provide a useful way for you to share best practice with your colleagues, meet with other supply teachers, meet with the branch and to discuss relevant educational topics. Again you can find out more about these forums through your local branch.

Overseas Trained Teacher Orientation Evenings

A specialised orientation evening will be held at your local branch specifically for overseas teachers new to the UK. This induction evening will look at the most important factors in assisting your integration into the UK school system and will allow you to meet with other colleagues in a similar situation. These events will be held on a regular basis at the branch and are combined with a drinks evening so you can get to know your local consultants and other local overseas teachers. Ask at branch for more information.
