Event description

Description

This event is aimed at GCSE and A-Level teachers from any discipline who would like to offer Classical Civilisation/ Ancient History to their students with our support. We will outline the benefits of studying the Greco-Roman world for young people and provide practical advice on how to lobby for new subjects in your school/ college. The final talk from our celebrity classicist Charlotte Higgins, author of "It's All Greek to Me," and The Guardian's chief arts writer is open to all.
