The TeachMeet event focused on teachers sharing ways of engaging young people and also saw breakout workshops covering the importance of maths in career and promoting equality and diversity in schools.

Diane Amey, curriculum lead for early years at Fareham College, said: ‘Events like these are incredibly beneficial for teachers. The opportunity to share knowledge and speak to teachers from other schools about the techniques and practices that work best for them, and are yielding results, is something that should happen far more regularly.’

Nigel Duncan, principal at Fareham College, added: ‘I’m delighted that Fareham College was chosen to host the first TeachMeet. The college works closely with many schools and it’s great to know the college can be seen as a hub where teachers can share good practice and leave feeling inspired.’
