Developing strong subject expertise in teachers is one of the key factors in ensuring pupils’ success. Our Subject Forums will allow you to look at the latest research in your subject area and to explore how you can incorporate this into your classroom practice.
Subject Forums are delivered in partnership with three Teaching School Hubs in the Eastern Region (Alpha, Chafford Hundred and Saffron) and with the Curriculum Hubs.
These remote sessions are designed to provide teachers with subject specific insights into evidence informed practice as a starting point to further reflection, professional learning and development of greater expertise.
- Our online Subject Forums are for all staff at all stages of their careers.
- The Subject Forums will give staff the opportunity to look at the latest research in their subject area and consider how they can incorporate this into their practice.
- The registration fee allows a school to add any teacher onto the Subject Forums during the year.
