Special network meeting for teachers of German


Durham University, School of Modern Languages and Cultures 

The Durham Global Alliance would like to extend a special invitation to teachers of German from across the North East region. We know how important it is to network and to share information and advice and hope that you will find this event to be useful. 

Colleagues at Durham University’s School of Modern Languages and Cultures would like to have a conversation with colleagues to ascertain what support would be useful from the university as schools begin to deliver the new GCSE programme of study. In particular, we know how challenging it can be to find appropriate listening resources and hope that collaboration with our university may address this need. 

The afternoon will begin with Kaffee und Kuchen and an overview of teaching at the university, We will also explore what student outreach could support your work in school. 

Together with colleagues, who will join us in person and virtually, we will also outline support which is available from DAAD, Goethe Institut, UK-German Connection. ALL and the region’s schools of education.
