The English Hub

Welcome to the ETC English Hub

Would you like to belong to a hub that:

  • provides professional learning on current issues in English teaching
  • values collaboration and critical reflection
  • puts you at the heart of your own development?

The hub will offer a series of nightschools as well as moderation activities for Key Stage 1 and 2, mentoring for new subject leaders and school enquiry visits which would be matched to support individual needs.  A subscription of £75 (introductory rate for 17/18) will be charged per school which entitles schools to send two members of staff to each workshop.   If your school wishes to subscribe to the English Hub complete and submit the form below.  Places on individual nightschool sessions will then be available to book via the ETC website.
