PSA Teachers' Network
The Political Studies Association (PSA) is committed to supporting Politics teachers in teaching the next generation about Politics and Government. Following on from the Chair's Commissions on Reaching Out and Adding Depth, the PSA is keen to deliver the next step in our engagment with our teacher members.
We will therefore be launching our new PSA Teachers' Network in October 2016.
The aims of the Network will include:
- providing a voice for Politics Teachers in the PSA and representing the interests of our teacher members and their schools within the PSA
- connecting our teacher members to other Politics teachers, academics and the wider discipline
- allowing our teacher members a space in an independent peer-led environment to develop a programme of activities to meet their needs and the needs of their students and schools
- undertaking outward facing activities for the PSA such as representing the PSA to external bodies
The Constitution of the new Network is here.
PSA Teacher members can nominate themselves for the following roles:
- Communications Officer
- Events Officer
To nominate yourself for any of these roles you will need to fill in this nomination form and return it to me via firstname.lastname@example.org. Please also include a short statement describing why you want the position you are applying for and what you would do in post.
Nominations will close on Friday 16 September.
The election period will run from Monday 26 September until Monday 3 October.
The Chair of the Teachers' Network will be invited to attend PSA Executive Committee (EC) Meetings. The EC is the ruling body of the Association. The next EC meeting will be in Sheffield from 20 - 21 October 2016. EC meetings are quarterly and normally held on a half day in central London.
