Course summary

This programme prepares you for a rewarding career as an effective and inspirational teacher of History. You will have opportunities to learn from current practitioners and external speakers who are at the forefront of History education. Working with experienced professionals you will explore how teaching and learning enables pupils to apply and understand the knowledge, skills and processes of History both inside and outside the classroom.

During your training you will focus on the various approaches and pedagogies for History, emphasising the practical application of theory. A sequence of micro-teaching experiences allow you to develop and share with peers, your understanding of learning and teaching strategies that support effective practice in the classroom. You will explore signature pedagogies such as interpretation and source analysis. These sessions will help to deepen your understanding of the role and nature of History in the curriculum and your own personal philosophy for your subject.

You will explore how History helps pupils to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time.

The subject knowledge sessions focus on common misconceptions held by Secondary History students and emphasise active learning and investigative teaching. As well as broadening your own historic knowledge, these sessions introduce you to strategies that allow you to make your subject knowledge as accessible and engaging as possible to students.
