The New History Curriculum: Have Your Say

Published 21st January 2013

The draft programmes of study for National Curriculum history have now been published. With this in mind The Historical Association has developed partnerships with The British Library, Midlands History Forum, at the School of Education, University of Birmingham and Northern History Forum and Leeds Trinity University College to provide 3 forums across the country to give primary and secondary teachers a chance to have their say.

The evening promises to be a great opportunity for both primary and secondary practitioners not only to find out more details about the draft programmes of study for history, but also to respond, hear what others have to say and to begin to plan for a new curriculum. If you want to make sure that you are fully briefed about what the changes mean for history in your school, have a chance to respond and if you want to stay ahead of the game in terms of implementing change, then one of these events is a must on your CPD calendar.

All three events will follow the same programme and will provide an opportunity for teachers across the country to take part. You will hear from well- respected speakers on the new curriculum, as well as have a chance to respond yourself, talk to other teachers and share ideas to plan for change through structured planning sessions…all for the minimal cost of £20 per delegate (£10 concessionary rate for trainees) at London and Northern forums and flat rate of £10 per delegate at Midlands forum. So don’t delay, sign up to your nearest event today. Places at all events are limited so book early to avoid disappointment.
