Association of Christian Teachers' Executive Officer - Lizzie Harewood and guest speakers discuss relevent topics and issues to encourage you to live for Christ as you lead in the classroom.
Teaching History 'Christianly'
The study of history is more than a collection of factual information like events, names and dates. History is a story, and it is a story that must be interpreted. The landscape of historical interpretation is ever-evolving, and differing cultural perspectives often compete to dominate the narrative. How do we, as Christian teachers, navigate this complex terrain while remaining true to a Biblical understanding and explanation of the world?
Join Lizzie in conversation with two current history teachers as we consider how we can bring glory to God in our classrooms.
A Pastoral Response to Gender Identity
In this episode, ACT's Lizzie engages in a candid conversation with Andrew Bunt about the real-world challenges young people face regarding gender issues. They delve into topics such as rapid onset gender dysphoria and explore how Christian educators can respond to these issues in the classroom with pastoral care and a steadfast commitment to truth and grace.
Tune in for an enlightening discussion that offers valuable insights for Christian teachers and anyone concerned about the well-being of our youth in today's complex world.
Andrew is Emerging Generations director at Living Out, an organisation that encourages Christians, equips churches, and engages the world with God’s plan for sexuality and identity He is the author of People Not Pronouns: Reflections on Transgender Experience (Grove Books) and Finding Your Best Identity: A Short Christian Introduction to Identity, Sexuality and Gender (IVP).
Teaching Science 'Christianly'

The state of sex education in schools
Premier Christian Newscast
The podcast, brought to you by Premier, which takes you deeper into the stories impacting Christians around the world. Each week, we’ll dig into a particular issue, hearing from those directly involved or with a vested interest to make sense of the story and why it matters.
The state of sex education in schools
Graphic lessons on oral sex, how to choke your partner safely, and the existence of 72 different genders. According to the Christian MP Miriam Cates, these are some of the things appearing in sex education classes up and down the country. According to her campaign, a radical progressive ideology has infiltrated sex and relationships education. In response to her lobbying, the prime minister said he would bring forward a review into sex education in schools, to ensure they are not teaching quote inappropriate or contested content. But is this really something to be worried about? What are children actually being taught about sex, gender and identity at school? Should Christian parents be joining any campaigns to supposedly de-wokify education, or is this all just a right-wing culture war talking point? Guests this week: - Nick Batt, youth and families worker at Christ Church Bromley - Julie Maxwell, community paediatrician and deputy director of Lovewise - Lizzie Harewood, executive officer of the Association of Christian Teachers
