Japan Conference for Schools
7 March 2014, London
A free one-day conference for networking and sharing ideas about bringing Japan and Japanese into schools.
The Japan Conference for Schools is open to schools or local authorities that are new to Japan work, schools implementing Japanese into the curriculum and those involved with partnerships in Japan, and schools looking to enhance or develop an existing programme of Japan-related study.
The day will include a series of speeches and workshops on Japan-related topics. This will include a key note speech by the Sir David Warren, the chair of the Japan Society and former ambassador to Japan. The 2013 Pearson Award's Teacher of the Year, Crispin Chambers from Tavistock School in Devon, will also give a presentation.
This conference aims to provide useful CPD for teachers of Japanese in both primary and secondary schools, as well as teachers who are interested in introducing Japan- related studies.
