    In the years 1969 - 1970, as an International Commonwealth teacher from Canada, I participated in a commonwealth orientation program associated with English schools which was offered at U of L in London, England.

    The program was located at the University of London, involved a tutor and consisted primarily of visiting significant English schools to enable sharing. I have misplaced my notes on my experience in London but would appreciate if someone could identify the program for me. Thank you.

    Hi Douglas,

    Sorry, I am not aware of this programme but it might be better to place this question on the Overseas Trained Teachers forum instead. I think members there are more likely to have the knowledge.

    The Overseas Trained Teachers forum is populated more by people new to the country now, trying to work out how to get qualified status here, so they're unlikely to know about something from fifty years back. You're more likely to find people who remember the scheme amongst those who were working in London schools back then - but they'll be in their 70s now. The "personal" forum might be worth a try, as there are some retired teachers around there, but I think most are probably more recently retired than that. Or maybe those of us with parents who were working then can ask if any of them came across it. Was it primary schools or secondary schools?
