ALL LONDON JANUARY EVENT - Sat 23rd January 2010


It always goes really well, and we get very positive feedback .. and this is usually down to not only having really good speakers who people have asked to hear .. but also to there being such a nice crowd of positive, friendly people who get up early on a Saturday to meet with other like-minded people! It’s just really nice to meet people face-to-face. Here’s a link to the pictures from last year when, despite the snow, 80+ brave souls came along!

Below is a link to the latest invitation to the ALL London January Event which has some minor adjustments to the previous versions

… people have offered to do sessions twice so there will be more choice

.. ..I’ll do the GCSE spec ‘challenges of controlled assessment’ talk again (the one I did at CILT) at the end if anyone wants it.

… we have included an extra session for students on how to apply for your first job -

.. . we have a special reduced rate for students (£5)

Link to Facebook group (THANKS Cat for setting this up.. and those of you on Facebook, please please join .. !!):

We still have the same great speakers ..

* Sara Sullivan who is an incredibly successful HOD in Essex and loads of practical, ‘do-able’ ideas for increasing take-up and attainment …

* Vincent Everett whom we all know well from the mflresources forum .. again, an excellent HOD brimming over with ideas (I know we benefit loads from his written input to fora, but you’ll get even more by coming along to the talk!!!) ..

* Gill Beckett will do a repeat of the excellent talk I saw her to at the CILT 14-19 conference .. a really comprehensive overview of all the accredited courses available and a chance to follow this up with her ..

* and Johann LeCalvez who is a really smiley, friendly member of the BBC web team and will give an overview of all that the BBC has to offer

There will be stands from Sanako, The Ardmore Group and CILT, and goodies and information from the London Links into Languages Team.

Finally, I have put myself down to do a repeat of the GCE controlled assessment talk in case anyone wants that … but I won’t cry if no-one does! I’ll do it after the other sessions so it is just an extra if you want to stay.

I have visited the venue .. it’s really good .. (photos on the website) … we can fit loads of people in to the big talks, and having repeats available for 2 of the talks should make it possible for you to go to the ones you want to go to.

I know a lot of people tend to leave it to the last minute to book (I’m one of them!) .. but it would be really really helpful to have an idea of numbers as soon as possible as we have to book the catering.

Hope to see people soon. Of-course we’ll post stuff up on the website later.

Please put Saturday 19th June in your diary for the next one .. to be held at the French Institute.

Best wishes

ALL London Chair
