This initiative has been set up by Alex Ford and you can find full details plus a sign-up form at his website:


In brief, the inaugural Teach Meet is scheduled for Friday 10th November, meeting at 4pm for a 4.30 start. It will have a theme of sharing teaching and ideas and resources for GCSE History. Everyone is welcome to come along for a drink and some great discussion about teaching history. Please share the event with as many local history teachers as you like.


Venue: The Emmott Arms, Rawdon which has a big car park and good bus links. Horsforth and Apperley Bridge train stations are close by too.

Format: Bring along a non-digital idea, resource, or great local history story connected to your GCSE teaching. You will need to be able to explain it / show it off in 3-4 minutes. You will then do “speed dating” with other teachers to share your brilliant ideas, stories and resources. We are wrapping up by 5:30pm, but you are welcome to stop on for a drink and a chat.

This is a great initiative so do visit Alex’s site for more details HERE …
