Teaching for a Social Purpose

Welcome to TeachNorthern’s blog:  Teaching for a Social Purpose

It’s about getting the message out there that teaching CAN change the world, and probably should.

Learning to blog is very out there, isn’t it?  You’ve can’t blog privately for a bit until you’ve got your confidence up.  I’ve thrown myself in head-first and chose WordPress because I liked the name…time will tell if I figure out how to get across the theory and practice of Teaching for a Social Purpose in a manner that anyone will want to read.

This blog is based on a dozen years’ fascination with teaching and teacher education, working at The Northern College in Barnsley, England.  The views expressed are my own, and not the organisation’s, though I hope our values continue to chime harmoniously for the next dozen years.

We are hard working educators with passionate interest in Teaching for a Social Purpose. Everything we've learned is through observing colleagues and students, all of whom are committed to changing the world. And reading interesting stuff. We work at The Northern College in Barnsley and its mission (and thirty-eight year history) of social transformation makes it an ideal base to face the challenges of teaching adults in 21st century England.
