The NATRE North West Network saw over 50 trainee teachers from Edge Hill, Hope and MMU and around a dozen serving RE teachers from our Partnership had an excellent day’s CPD with Stephen Pett from NATRE. It was the last day at University for our Final Year Undergraduates and PGCE students at Edge Hill came out of school for the day. It was free for all to attend thanks to the support of the Jerusalem Trust and Edge Hill University.
The day was as always focussed on classroom practice, and totally interactive, with sessions on happiness, assessment, ultimate questions and planning an enquiry based Scheme of Work. Feedback from students and serving teachers was totally positive.
“In 12 years of teaching this is the best CPD I have had” – Rachel, Head of RE
Next Year’s event is destined to be earlier in the year – so keep Monday 15th December 2014 in mind, and school based partners can begin to mention this date to their line managers. You can read about 2013’s event here. Lots more photos from the day are on Flickr and below!
