The London History Exchange TeachMeet is back for the new academic year and this time we are discussing the new GCSE curriculum. We would like to bring History teachers across London to come together and share best practice and ideas of the new GCSE curriculum across all exam boards.
We have a Key Note Speaker, Martin Spafford who helped design the new GCSE curriculum as well as taught History at George Mitchell School in East London for over 20 years and is an education committee member of BASA.
Please join us for some drinks and food and listen to passionate teachers share some of the best things that they do in the classroom. This event is a collaboration between the UCL Institute of Education History Tutors and the Teach First London History Network - it's open to all teachers who want to meet others and continuously improve their practice in History teaching.
