Upcoming event

Heads of Department Meeting 2020

Following the successful event last year, we are delighted to be hosting the next seminar for Heads of Department or their equivalent  on 23 March 2020. The day will include discussions on the REF and teacher education across the four nations.

BERA’s annual meeting will provide an opportunity for colleagues to meet and find areas of common interest. There is currently much to discuss, and we feel that the community will benefit from doing this at a strategic level.

Lunch is provided.
