Association of Philosophy Teachers (APT)
The British Philosophical Association is launching a new initiative for people teaching philosophy in UK schools. The plan is to organise and gather teachers together to help support and promote our subject by building a reciprocal relationship between UK philosophy teachers and the BPA.
At the moment and in this early stage, we’re keen to contact as many school/college philosophy teachers as possible to help get the word out. Any relevant contacts for philosophy teachers in schools that would be interested in being a part of an organised network are encouraged to reach out! Are there local schools or colleges that you work with? Philosophy A level groups that you support? 6th form colleges that you visit or collaborate with? Perhaps you have a ‘recruitment marketing’ person for philosophy with a network of relevant contacts? We encourage anyone involved with philosophy in UK schools to reach out: firstname.lastname@example.org. Any please feel free to forward this appeal to anyone you think might be interested, including Facebook groups!
