    Judith, I would be up for both. How do i get more involved? would there be a role for me (no matter how small) as an NQT in the borders?

    With the Scottish Borders Learning Festival being all but cancelled would love to try and get a TeachMeet organised…

    Judith, i am based at eyemouth high school for my NQT probation year. Where are you based?

    A teachMeet woul be brilliant but I take the reason behind cancelling the festival as very valid and wonder if it would impact on the success of a TeachMeet? BeerMeet to organise?

    Darren I’m in Earlston High – I teach English. Would central Borders be a pain for a BeerMeet for you?

    ” Growing demands on staff time and resources, both at school and Local Authority level over the next year as we move to a critical phase of CfE planning and implementation means that we will not be able to support an event such as a learning festival to the extent it requires.”

    To be honest don’t think the reasons for cancelling really impacts on the potential for a teachmeet. I think it was more when you compare what East Lothian achieved with their learning festival it would have taken a great deal to match that.

     

    Real question moving forward is how do we get more people involved? Beermeet is probably a good start…

    It wouldn’t be a pain at all. Would obviously hinder the beer element but that’s not the point I’d imagine. I’m based outside of Duns and more than happy to travel. Earlston has such a beautiful building and a friend of mine is probation pe. Also a friend of mine is on placement pe.

    Brilliant, Darren!

    Hi Stewart. I also, genuinely, think that the support for attending would be hard to garner as we are moving towards our first presentation of pupils at Nat 4 and Nat 5 (or deciding what level is to be sat, at least). However, a teachmeet is a great idea. How about a teachmeet 365, like a beermeet but with an agenda and an element of sharing? Will start a new thread.

    Yes to a beermeet! Would be a great place to start planning a possible teachmeet if everyone saw the merit in holding one. Perhaps with Nats coming in a teachmeet could look at aspects of those.

    Guys – should I start looking into venues and times? How would mid to end of october suit folks? Friday? Saturday? sunday lunch?
