Prince's Teaching Institute Summer Residential

The summer residential organised by the Prince's Teaching Institute has been held at Homerton College for quite a few years now.

Details of this year's event are up on the website, and now is the time to find out more, and book a place if you fancy 3 days of talks and workshops including academics such as Nick Middleton, and Alan Kinder from the GA. The delegate fee also comes with a year's further involvement in the PTI's school support programme.
I've been honoured to be asked to speak twice at previous PTI events, in London and Harrogate and the delegates are always so attentive and interested, and the speakers I've worked with have always been excellent.

As Graham Goldup, one of the organisers says:

“This residential will provide a key opportunity to discuss the new challenges and concepts presented by changes in the national curriculum, 9-1 GCSE and reformed A Levels. We need to share new place-based content and discuss new teaching and learning strategies to better prepare our students for the challenging topics, rigorous linear assessment, compulsory fieldwork opportunities and independent research projects that lie ahead. To be inspirational in our teaching we need to be inspired, so take this opportunity to learn from fellow professionals and re-energise your passion for Geography.”
