Welcome to the Earth Science Teachers' Association website. The aim of the Association is to advance education by encouraging and supporting the teaching of Earth sciences at all levels, whether as a single subject such as Geology, or as part of Science or Geography or other courses. We are particularly keen to welcome as members, teachers who have no formal Earth science training but deliver an Earth science component in the National Curriculum. There is no qualification necessary for membership, other than a willingness to promote the aim of the Association. If you are considering a career in teaching then please look here.
Keeping in touch with ESTA members We would like to build up an email list of ESTA members.  We hope to use this list to contact you by email in order to send you details of ESTA meetings and activities and alert you to other Earth Science activities and events that may be of interest to you. If you would like to added to our mailing list, please confirm by sending a message to David Bailey (ESTA Secretary) here. We promise that mailings will be informal and at irregular intervals (say once or twice a term). (You can ask to be removed from our mailing list at any time) Best wishes,  Jo Conway (ESTA Chairman)
