Event description

Description

Speakers:
Robert Eaglestone (Royal Holloway, University of London)
Billy Clark (Middlesex University)

Following the introduction of reformed syllabuses for A level English subjects, it seems timely to bring together practitioners from post16 and higher education to discuss good practice at the present time and to review ways forward. The conference welcomes teachers of English from all institutions, including state and independent schools, FE, sixth form colleges and universities.

The conference will focus on good practice and current opportunities for a more coherent and progressive approach to English studies in post16 education. The invited speakers will provide the context for short presentations and discussions led by members of the NATE Post16 Committee.

Issues to be discussed include:

  • Transition between GCSE and A Level and HE

  • Dealing with unseens and other forms of critical analysis

  • The role of theory and the canon

  • Creative and critical writing

  • Possibilities for integrating the subject within and across subjects
