Exciting news for North East MFL-ers!
The ALLNE is hosting its first Teachmeet.
It takes place on 20th October 2015 at Newcastle University's King George VIth Building in room 1.36.
The Teachmeet runs from 4:30-6:30pm with the idea that attendees will have the opportunity to network and chat afterwards and perhaps wander into Newcastle for food and drinks.
It came about after a conversation Steven Fawkes and I had at Suzi Bewell's MFL PGCE Show and Tell at York University this summer.
Steven thought that it would be a great idea to put on similar events in the North East. There are lots of really great Teachmeets around the region, but none specifically for MFL trainees and NQTs.
So after a few emails and tweets between us, the amazing organisational skills of Newcastle Uni PGCE tutor, Cheryl Mackay, Eleanor Gordon for creating the link and Rene for letting us have the venue, everything seems to be ready.
Any teachers or educationalists can sign up to attend but presenters must be either trainees or recently qualified teachers.
How do you sign up?
You can find out more and sign up to the event here.
If you wish to present for either 2 or 5 minutes or have any questions, you can contact Steven or even Me and we'll be glad to help.
Also if you're reading this and know someone who might like to come, please tell them.
See you there!
If you can't make it Newcastle, don't worry, we intend to host others in and around the North East during this academic year.
