Virtual TeachMeet

Whilst the past few months have been pretty hard to explain, think about, go through and reflect on, we’ve been doing all those.

We know that schools and staff within have been coming up with some pretty amazing new ways of teaching, so we’d like to enable them to share all this and discuss. Please find below our flyer for the TeachMeet happening soon.
