In the last year there has been a great demand form schools for me to train their staff to teach Minimus, so I have had an enjoyable and rather hectic time dashing round the country. In order to spread the load I have gathered a group of 12 experienced Minimus teachers who are going to do some of the training for me. We met on Saturday 5th September at Birmingham University for a Train the Trainers Day. I am grateful to Classics for All who sponsored the event and Elena Theodorakopoulos at Birmingham University who agreed to host the meeting in the splendid rooms of the Classics department.
9 of my group of 12 were able to attend (pictures as below) and we had a useful and enjoyable time sharing good practice in teaching Minimus and looking at different types of training event and how best to share resources. These ladies are now equipped to run training events around the country and what came across was our common passion for Latin. I know they will do a great job.
If anyone wishes to be trained to teach Minimus, please get in touch with the PLP office ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) and we will do our best to provide what you need.
