CANCELLED - Japan400 Plymouth: Primary Partnership Conference and Japan Society Southwest Teachers’ Resource Workshop
Save event

A tall ship will sail into Sutton Harbour on 27 September to commemorate the historic homecoming of The Clove 400 years ago. This re-enactment is the centrepiece of Japan400 Plymouth, an eight-day international event that celebrates the historic and cultural links binding the United Kingdom and Japan. 

Japan400 Plymouth reaffirms these links and opens new opportunities for exchange, collaboration and discovery. 

Please note that due to unforeseen circumstances, this event has now been cancelled.

In a very special conference, the Plymouth University Institute of Education is delighted to welcome the Japan Society to run a programme of workshops and talks designed for primary and secondary teachers from across the South West. 

The Japan Society will bring top-level educational experts and cultural practitioners, who will introduce how you can bring Japan into your curriculum and classroom with a particular focus on Key Stages 2 and 3. 

We are also extremely pleased to confirm that, as part of the proceedings, Masterchef Peter Gorton will give a special demonstration of Japanese-style cooking. Peter’s new JTJ Restaurant Academy for youth will cater lunch.
The workshops are open to all teachers across the South West. Booking essential. Primary schools free, secondary schools £10. 

Please contact for more information.
