Teacher Fellowship Programmes

Teacher Fellowship Programmes

The Historical Association's Teacher Fellowship Programme is a fully funded, rigorous, in-depth CPD programme which normally runs over 8 weeks starting with a intensive residential weekend and followed up by 8 online sessions. We bring our academic partners together with an experienced teacher educator to design a programme that brings your research to the teachers involved and always ensures there is a strong practical approach to the teaching and a solid curriculum rationale.

At the end of the course, participants are required and helped to develop practical teaching resources that will have an impact on their own and others’ teaching. The outcomes of the project will be widely disseminated by participants through their own local networks (this is a criteria for the award of a Teacher Fellowship), through the HA’s online and print publications and through national and local events. Teacher Fellows are encouraged to deliver workshops to other teachers to help disseminate their new understanding. Past Teacher Fellows have delivered workshops at the HA’s annual conference, at our regional forums and at local teacher events.

Teacher Fellowship Programmes need to be funded. It is highly recommended that they be built into the impact funds and that you discuss the possibilities with the HA with plenty of time to get this built into your funding application.

These programmes have a significant impact on those involved, many reporting that it has reignited their subject love and understanding and enriched their pupils’ experience of history.
