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!

Heritage Based Marketing

“The History walks are great. Lots of people are interested in them and even through just using word of mouth and results from the website we’re seeing lots of new customers. Once we launch a programme of walks we’re expecting to see lots of repeat customers.”

History sells. The heritage tourist industry alone is worth £5bn a year to this country. Add in the interest in popular History based documentaries and the rapid expansion of the Family History market and it is clear that Heritage can be used to target new markets and create repeat customers.

We can provide:

  • Heritage trails featuring your business prominently

  • History talks about targeted subjects
  • Guidance on ephemera that is likely to create interest
