Teacherfest 2021

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.

Last year’s inaugural Teacherfest, held amidst the uncertainty of the first lockdown, demonstrated the value and opportunities for teachers provided by online learning: a chance to meet and discuss important issues without needing to travel.

This year Teacherfest went bigger and better with a more extensive programme. Some events were led by Bristol teachers and local organisations whilst others saw speakers joining us from elsewhere in the UK and further afield, notably Finland, France and the Netherlands. It provided an opportunity to learn from innovative practice close to home and elsewhere. Participants joined from across the world including from Singapore, Pakistan, Rwanda and the USA.
