Opening up conversations about religion and worldviews

We are delighted to be launching a new summer 2020 blog series called ‘Opening up conversations about religion and worldviews’. This blog series is being run in collaboration with the RE Policy Unit, a partnership between NATRE, the RE Council and RE Today. It will include contributions from a wide range of teachers, those working in initial teacher education and researchers in this field.

A pdf of the entire series with a foreword and epilogue by Professor Trevor Cooling, Chair of the RE Council of England and Wales is available to download at the bottom of the page.
