North West Hub (Manchester)

Plans for a regional Classics hub will bring together the Manchester Classical Association in partnership with the Department of Classics & Ancient History and the Outreach & Widening Participation Office of the University of Manchester, Liverpool University, Liverpool College, Bellerive Catholic High School and other key partners to offer a menu of CPD for teachers of pupils at all Key Stages including:

  • Training for teachers on the use of classical studies to support the literacy and MFL curriculum at Key Stage 2.
  • The introduction of Latin in Liverpool primary schools in socio-economically challenging areas as part of the literacy curriculum at Key Stage 2.
  • Training for teachers to introduce ancient history or Latin at Key Stage 3.
  • Training for teachers keen to introduce classical civilisation and /or ancient history in secondary schools.
  • Training teachers with some foundation in a classical language to teach GCSE Greek or Latin.
  • Running an after-school Greek course for able or interested pupils from across the city.
  • Making classics/MFL part of teacher training via Schools Direct or PGCE courses at Manchester, Edge Hill, Liverpool Hope or Chester Universities.
