North West

Welcome to the North West region learning page. In this region we work collaboratively at a regional county and branch level to deliver high quality and relevant learning opportunities.

The North West group has seen ATL members access a variety of learning opportunities in the last 12 months and the group which includes ULRs, branch secretaries and reps have sourced CPD and other training to develop a learning portfolio that includes sessions such as dealing with dyslexia, creativity in the classroom, assessment for learning, behaviour management, getting ready for OFSTED, and protecting your professional identity.

You can get involved in the North West by completing a learning needs survey, attending an event or getting involved by becoming a union learning rep.

Supply teacher conference

This course will look in detail at the gaps in knowledge that the current Yr 8 and 9 students may have (from following the old KS3, and progressing to the new GCSE).

ATL invite you to our North West Supply Teacher Conference, held jointly with our colleagues from NUT. The aim is to give you the specific skills and knowledge for a successful year as a supply teacher. There will be opportunities to network with other supply teachers, ask questions to ATL and NUT representatives and take part in a range of useful workshops.

Featured sessions include:

  • What makes an outstanding supply teacher?
  • the new curriculum
  • behaviour management strategies.

There will be breakfast rolls, refreshments and lunch provided.

Who this course is for

Supply teachers.


Free of charge for ATL members. Places are limited. NUT members need to book through their union.
