Gearing up for the new A-level qualifications? Our October conference at London University will provide plenty of inspiration for leaders of Key-stage

English and for all those responsible for delivering the new specifications. The day will: feature short presentations from key academics, introducing new directions in the subject and ways in which undergraduate courses are currently taught. offer a rare opportunity for formal and informal discussion between teachers at secondary and higher level. focus on key areas of the new A-level specifications (Shakespeare, contemporary literature, the unseen, integrated language and literature approaches). be relevant to all three English subjects. conclude with a final panel discussion which will include representatives from the different examining bodies.

This will be an ideal occasion to keep up to speed with your subject, share ideas for the new courses and recharge your teaching batteries! Gearing up for the new A-level qualifications?
