Teacher training

Build confidence in bringing the news into your classroom.

We've created a free online teacher-training course to support teachers to bring discussions about the news into their classrooms.

You’ll learn:

  • Why it’s so important to support the children you teach to have meaningful discussions about the news
  • How to manage discussions about sensitive and complex topics in the classroom
  • Tips for developing the essential skills to build news literacy
  • A range of student-led discussion activities

Each course module comes with an accompanying fully-resourced 60-90 minute lesson for you to try in your classroom. The course is suitable for teachers of students aged 10+ with a B2 level English or higher.

Access the course

Teaching the News is hosted on Springboard, a free-to-use education platform from Infosys. All you’ll need to do is set up a free account to access the course!
