Loading Events
  • This event has passed.

The requirement that pre-Universiy students engage with modern scholarship on aspects of the classical world is a feature of the current OCR A-Level Classical Civilisation specifications in the United Kingdom. This training session by the Classical Association intends to support teachers as they plan and deliver this new and frequently challenging element.

The event will include sessions delivered by leading academics on each of the A Level module choices. Attendees will be able to choose a pathway through the day that is entirely relevant to their own school context. There will also be workshops led by schoolteachers, focusing on ways to deliver scholarship to students, and how to train them to make use of it in their own work.
