Politics Teachers' Conference 2016

Time: 9:50am - 2:30pm
Venue: QMUL, Mile End Campus, Arts Two Building, Room 320

Calling A-Level Teachers of Government, Politics, and History

Join us for the third annual Hackney Learning Trust Politics Partnership and QMUL School of Politics & International Relations Teachers' Conference.

Taking place on the UK's EU Referendum Day, the day will feature a special talk from Professor Tim Bale and Dr Robert Saunders on past and recent referendums.

As well as talk on UCAS applications, Teachers also have the chance to choose from three different breakout sessions, each of which is led by a QMUL academic.

We’re looking forward to an engaging and interactive day that will allow you to come together with other A-Level Teachers and University Faculty.
