Free training course in Latin and Greek (Classics for All)

From Classics for All…

Following the success of the free training course in Latin and Greek that we ran for teachers in October 2017 at Harrow School, we are proposing to run the course again this summer and would like to gauge initial interest.

Harrow School has kindly offered us the use of their facilities between Tuesday 28th – Thursday 30th August 2018 and therefore we propose to run a 2 – 2.5 day course during this time period.

Depending on interest levels, we plan to offer separate groups for those interested in the following:

  • Beginners Latin (Cambridge Latin Course Book 1)
  • Intermediate Latin (up to GCSE level)
  • Beginners Greek (John Taylor Greek to GCSE Book 1)
  • Intermediate Greek (for those with some existing knowledge of Greek, focusing more on GCSE level language content)

The training course is open to all teachers in state secondary schools in England or Wales. Whether you are interested in introducing Latin or Ancient Greek into your school for the first time, or whether you would like to consolidate your own linguistic understanding to support what you currently teach, we hope that this free training opportunity will prove invaluable.

The information above provides a rough guide to the content that we propose to cover in each group but this is extremely flexible. We are keen to ensure that these courses are as beneficial as possible to those who attend and therefore we will tailor the exact structure and content of each class in response to need.

The sessions will be led by a subject specialist from Harrow School and by experienced trainers from Classics for All. Group sizes will be kept small to allow for maximum progress.

The course is free to attend and lunch will also be provided free of charge. For those travelling from further afield and/or for those whose schools are unable cover the costs, Classics for All may be able to offer some discretionary funding towards accommodation and travel expenses.

What next?
In order to help us gauge initial levels of interest, please complete this short online form by 25th May if you are interested in coming on the course. By completing this form, you are NOT committing to anything at this stage – we’re just trying to ascertain how many people might be interested in attending and at what level.
