Professional Learning Network

The UCL Access and Widening Participation Office have launched a Professional Learning Network (PLN) for teachers and education professionals. Members of the PLN will be invited to attend special events including regular ‘Teacher Takeaway’ twilight CPD sessions, teacher conferences, and also receive a regular newsletter.


Activities and events will draw together academics, researchers and teachers to explore pedagogies and tools that aim to close the attainment gap and support social mobility through education. Our intention is that practising teachers will form a powerful voice within the PLN, shaping content and helping to deliver CPD, which will be complemented by contributions from experts within higher education and the world of work.

As part of UCL’s commitment to widening participation and fair access, the Professional Learning Network is free to join and aimed at teachers working in state-funded schools and colleges. If you would like to be a part of the Network please register using the online form.


Teacher Takeaway

Teaching 'British values'

Thursday 25 January 2018, 6.00-7.30pm

UCL Institute of Education, London


The UCL Access and Widening Participation Office are delighted to welcome Paul Salmons from the UCL Centre for Holocaust Education to lead this interactive CPD event for teachers.

What are the stories we like to tell ourselves about ourselves, and what do we mean by the term 'British values'?

In the week of Britain's national Holocaust Memorial Day we will:

- consider how the past is used to narrate stories of national identity

- discuss how more complex and multi-layered accounts might deepen and enrich       classroom conversations

- explore the values, attitudes and behavior of British people in the past and what they mean for us today

Drawing on concepts from Human Rights Education, we will also ask what constitutes meaningful values education - should we be teaching about British values, for British values or through British values?

The event will use practical examples and provide advice and resources for teachers to 'takeaway' and use in their own educational setting.

The event is free to attend, and open to teachers working in state schools and colleges.

To secure your place please email wp.teachers@ucl.ac.uk.
