Running an event is an important way to raise awareness of the College of Teaching and what it could become with teachers at the heart of it.
A recent survey conducted by The Education Company for Claim Your College, showed that more than 50% of teachers have not yet heard about a College of Teaching, however most want to join once they hear what it could offer.
Whilst it is early days for the College, this is our moment to gain momentum. We need your support in raising awareness of the College of Teaching on a local level by running an event in your area to help us reach as many teachers and educators as possible.
We have a number of resources available to assist anyone hosting their own discussions and debates:
- Download the College of Teaching events pack, which includes discussion points, signposting to helpful resources, including video and animations that can be used to start a session or stimulate discussion, a feedback form and advice on using social media.
- Download our branded PowerPoint presentation detailing current plans for the College.
- Link to our College of Teaching animations on YouTube. These provide a powerful way of exciting teachers about the potential of a College with a clear call to action to join the supporters’ community.
- Link to our Pinterest page, providing the background to the College of Teaching and a wide selection of articles from the media and blogs.
