London Local Group

What is a Local Group?

There are over 260 local network groups across the UK, Hong Kong and Cyprus connecting over 2000 teachers and RE professionals. These groups are coordinated by the NATRE Local Groups officer, Juliet Lyal, a member of the NATRE Executive.

The NATRE affiliated groups all come in different forms providing networking opportunities and engagement that can be invaluable to teachers, lesson ideas and solutions; helping the RE network grow with familiarity of the local areas and opportunities to understand what is happening in the region and across the country.

Each local group is affiliated with NATRE which enables it to benefit from the support we can offer. Our aim is that every teacher of RE should have a NATRE- affiliated local group within 10 miles (or 30 minutes) of where they live or teach!

If we don't have a Regional Ambassador in your area, you can contact our NATRE Local Groups officer Juliet Lyal for support.
