We are delighted to invite you to attend our online Teacher Days that we hope will help you in your professional development.
Our aim is to provide you with practical, relevant and motivating talks in a format where you will be able to interact via dynamic chats and polls with our presenters, as if you were in the same room together! With multi-device access, you will be able to attend from wherever you are.
In keeping with our campaign of looking after teachers, we have included a talk on ‘Mindfulness’ that we are sure will be beneficial to both teachers and students alike.
Don’t miss this unique opportunity to attend innovative, thought-provoking and practical talks that will empower your teaching, advance your students’ learning and help to promote a positive classroom environment for all!
