CPD, Inset and Consultancy for History Teachers and the Heritage Sector
SchoolsHistory has 15 years experience of providing CPD to teachers. Ranging from one to one sessions with NQT's to providing course content for MA courses, we have catered for the training needs of History teachers at all stages of their careers. As experienced teachers we are fully aware of the need to provide guidance that can be transferred straight into your classroom. CPD sessions are practical in nature - we don't do lectures!
