The last two years of Teacherfest took place against the backdrop of the pandemic and all events were held online. This year we had a mixture of live and online events, enabling colleagues to get out and about, visit other schools and meet staff working in other settings.
Schools within the Bristol Education Partnership (BEP) started working together with local environmental organisations in 2019 to develop projects to help tackle the climate emergency. This was BEP’s launch project and since that time work has continued. Whilst progress has inevitably been affected by the pandemic and the various lockdowns, students and staff met earlier this year to discuss their achievements to date and plan future activities.
Bristol Teacherfest 2021 took place online from 7 June – 2 July. A month-long festival of inspiring talks, workshops and panel discussions was held with the aim of supporting schools and teachers across the city to help make Bristol the best place possible for young people to live and learn in.
