BSA Teachers Course
The British School at Athens runs an intensive course each year for school teachers of Greek civilisation which explores Ancient Greek history and archaeology through site tours and lectures.
Our CPD days are delivered by leading classicists and held around the country or online. We aim to cover Latin and Greek, Ancient History and Classical Civilisation, with a focus on the current specifications and developments signalled by exam boards. Our sessions include opportunities to network with other Classics teachers and to join our subject reference groups. These support CPD organisers in tailoring sessions to your current needs and provide another opportunity for you to network with other teachers. Key exam board representatives are invited and engage directly with you on their developing thinking.

NEC Study Bursaries
Applications for this scheme are currently closed.
The Classical Association has three full bursaries available for state sector teachers to study the OCR Classical Civilisation A level. The NEC course gives you the flexibility to fit your learning around your lifestyle and to study the OCR syllabus at your own pace, with a personal online tutor supporting you throughout. This provides an opportunity for personal development, an enhanced CV, and for enriching the support you can offer to students throughout your school. The CA will not only pay your course fees but also your exam fees, making each bursary worth an estimated £850 based on current course and exam fee scales.
