Who We Are

The Classical Association Teaching Board (CATB), made up of teachers, examiners, subject reps, academics, curriculum providers and practitioners, was established in 2015 to support teachers of Classical subjects and ancient history at all levels. The CATB offers INSET days, teaching and learning resources, and Continuing Professional Development; it works closely with examination boards and other subject associations; and advocates for the wider Classics community. The CATB builds on the work of the Joint Association of Classical Teachers (JACT) which was founded in 1963 and merged with the Classical Association in 2015.

If you would like to bring an issue to the attention of the CATB, please contact Katrina at [email protected]
