Relight-ED

Inspiring Teaching Techniques, For Teachers Who Want To Inspire!

Relight-ED is a collection of published authors, teachers, artists, musicians, film makers, actors, animators, script writers, radio producers and many more talented people who are successful in their field. We have all come together because we have a shared passion, EDUCATION.

Relight-ED was founded by best selling children’s author, Gez Walsh and ex-teacher and events co-ordinator Elaine Duffy their aim was simple; to work together to show that education can be fun. Relight-ED work with people of all ages and abilities, creating one off tailor made projects. We aim to help students understand the value of a good education. We also aim to help teachers who have the skills and the ideas but not the time or the contacts to introduce different forms of learning. We are a think tank that develops new and innovative ways to engage people into the joys of learning.

We are a none for profit organisation, all the monies are used to cover costs and introduce new ideas. We try to get funding where possible to cover costs so we can deliver high quality workshops for reduced cost to the school, college etc.

Why not have a visit from a top selling author? Or create your own computer animations? Make a film with young innovative film makers. Produce, direct and stage your own theatre extravaganza. Or develop and record your own radio play and have it podcast!

The emphasis is to have fun while learning and to engage people of all ages and abilities without pressure or patronising.
