Improve your awareness of modern British culture to enhance your lessons

This programme is aimed at secondary and higher education teachers. We help you to learn about British culture and life so you can integrate relevant, contemporary context into your lessons.

Participants are asked to complete a detailed pre-course questionnaire, which should be returned prior to the course. We ask you to select topic areas of the most relevance to you so that we can best match the needs of each group and maximise the benefit gained by each participant. The pre-course information forms a crucial part of the overall design of the course. 

Admissions to all cultural visits are included in the course price. 

Due to the current situation with Covid-19, course start dates are under review. Please contact us for more information regarding the course you are interested in so we can advise and update you accordingly.
