TeachMeet brings together West Midlands teachers

12 June 2014

Teachers from across the West Midlands will share their experiences and advice at a TeachMeet session on 7 July at Holly Lodge Science College in Smethwick.

TeachMeets are informal gatherings of teachers to share best practice, innovation and insight through brief presentations. 

As well as sharing their own experience, teachers will hear from education expert Sir Tim Brighouse, former chief education officer in Birmingham and schools commissioner for London. Education consultant David Cameron, Chair of the York Education Partnership, will also share his advice.

A breakfast seminar the following day will see Sir Tim Brighouse and David Cameron discuss ‘leading in impossible times’ with an audience of head and deputy head teachers at Broadway Academy in Birmingham.

Michelle Storer, Director at Hays said: “TeachMeets are growing in popularity across the world, and we’re pleased to be able to give teachers in Birmingham the opportunity to learn from each other and share their experiences in this enjoyable, informal format. We’re delighted that Sir Tim Brighouse and David Cameron can join us to lend their expertise to the event.”

The TeachMeet will take place from 5-7pm on 7 July 2014 at Holly Lodge 11-19 Science College, Smethwick. Teachers who are interested in attending should contact Michelle Storer at Hays in Coventry on 024 76 222322 or email
