With the date for the implementation of the Curriculum for Wales 2022 fast approaching, the St Giles’ Centre is responding by planning a range of FREE professional learning courses designed to provide online targeted support for teachers in Wrexham during 2021/2022.

Staff at the St Giles’ Centre are closely involved with professional learning developments related to RE/RVE at a national level in Wales, which help us to develop professional learning initiatives that are informed by the ‘bigger picture’. Updates on these developments will be posted on this page and in our blog.

All participants receive a ‘Certificate of Participation’ from the St Giles’ Centre and our partners: Wrexham County Borough Council and Bishop Grosseteste University.

We are also providing online professional learning for Religious Studies GCSE, AS/A-level in the spring term of 2021.

Religious Studies (GCSE, AS/A-level)

It is a challenging time for teachers and learners preparing for GCSE and AS/A-level Religious Studies assessments in 2021, as the impact of Covid-19 on examination practices is being felt for a second year running.

In order to support teachers and learners in Wrexham at this difficult time, the St Giles’ Centre has asked experienced educator and coach, Dr Greg Barker, to create a series of webinars for GCSE Religious Studies and AS/A-level Religious Studies (WJEC). The timing of the webinars is being informed by relevant WJEC announcements (see WJEC).

Information about the webinars for teachers is found on this page, while the webinars for learners may be found in the resources section of this website in Webinars.
