History Teacher Training.

The History teacher training programme is centred around making you the most effective and successful practitioner that you can be. With subject pedagogy, teaching and learning at the heart, you will be able to successfully instil the passion for the subject and lifelong learning into your students by understanding what makes a conducive learning environment. The core aspects of History pedagogy are integral, and this will ensure you develop your subject knowledge, but also the evidence-based approach by using research to inform and plan sequenced lessons. History is essential in understanding current events and this course will enable you to facilitate themes and concepts which will support successful learning.
