Building on the success of previous years, we will be holding another Understanding Humanism Teachers Conference.

The day will include stimulating seminars and workshops for primary and secondary RE teachers, subject leaders, and headteachers, and is designed to enhance your subject knowledge of humanism while providing you with ideas and tools to support your teaching about non-religious worldviews in the classroom.

If you have any questions about this event, please contact our Director of Understanding Humanism, Luke Donnellan, on

Please also visit Understanding Humanism for free resources to support your teaching about humanism.

Just wanted to thank you and your team for a fabulous conference yesterday. I've come away buzzing and full of inspiring ideas for our Humanism unit and cross-curricular spirituality, to name just 2 areas. I felt that the day ran like clockwork. Congratulations!
