recently took early retirement from a teaching career spanning 32 years in the Secondary sector. In his last post Steve Harrington was Faculty Manager and Director of Learning Humanities.
In addition to teaching History, Geography, French ,RE and Citizenship, Steve Harrington instigated early entry initiatives with classes in Classical Civilisation and Ancient History to groups of interested students as lunchtime clubs, resulting in many achieving early GCSE and AS level examination passes in these subjects. Some even went on to take OU modules in these subjects whilst still in Key Stage 4!
These courses were also taught at Castle Point and Rochford Adult Community College.
Steve is an Associate Lecturer with the Open University and a GTP Tutor Assessor for STTP and Christ Church Canterbury University.
Steve joined Portals to the Past in January 2013 and provides a range of Myths and Legends workshops for KS2. He is also offering Classical Civilisation and Ancient History courses to senior schools. More workshops are planned for the future.
