CATB

The Classical Association Teaching Board (CATB) was established in 2015. It supports teachers of classical subjects and ancient history at all levels; it offers INSET days, supporting materials and other CPD. The CATB works closely with examination boards and other subject associations.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.

The CA has a special board of advisors specifically charged with matters of concern to Classics teaching in the UK. If you would like to make the Teaching Board aware of an issue, please contact the Office.
