Just to let you know that a network is being created for History teachers in the London area. Esther Arnott is leading the creation of the network and she writes:

The aim is to offer networking opportunities (both face to face meetings, and virtual/online networking) in order to promote history and provide development opportunities for history teachers. We'd love for the network to be totally inclusive: sixth form, adult ed, secondary, primary, junior, specialist education, ITE, private and state - the greater the links, the greater the opportunities for enrichment.

The great news is that a number of people have already offered to speak at network meetings, but before we launch headlong into a set of speaker events, I'd like to know what else people want. For example, people have already suggested that they'd like to hear historians talk on the latest historiography for AS/A2 and IB topics; others have asked for sessions on preparing for Ofsted subject inspections. To take part in an online discussion where you get to share your wish list, please get in contact with your name, your school, location / borough and I'll enroll you in the online forum.


Esther's site is www.estherarnott.com. A site for the network is in the process of being constructed.

Donald Cumming and Sarah Jaggs did something similar a few years back and I was sorry to miss it (especially as they went to the dog track after some hard graft and exchanging resources).

If you are interested, post a reply below/send a PM or visit Esther's site. :)
