HA membership is for anybody with a professional or personal interest in history

Whether you’re a head of history in school, an academic, a primary history teacher, or simply love history for the sake of it, there’s something for everyone.  

I value most about the HA that it represents the whole broad spectrum of history; a really exciting organisation from that point of view because every time that I organise a lecture it’s something completely different, it’s not one narrow little area. This is for everybody and that we can get ideas from everyone who joins.”
Mary Feerick, Bristol Branch Secretary 

“You get the chance to network with other history teachers,  find out what people are doing in other schools... I think that’s the best thing about the Historical Association. If I ever have a problem, I can just go on to the website and someone will have written about the problem that I’m having...In the nine years that I’ve been a member, I’ve tried out loads of new ideas; it’s a great network to be a part of.”
Natasha de Stefano, History Teacher, Bishop Thomas Grant School 

“I joined the HA because I have always had a love of history and, as a teacher, wanted to promote it with the children I work with. I’ve made use of the resources available on the website to support what I do and give lots of interesting ideas. The CPD I’ve received from conference and the forums has been thought-provoking and encouraged me to think about the curriculum in many different ways.”
Stuart Tiffany, Year 5 Class Teacher and History Subject Leader 

“The HA gives me an opportunity to find out more; learn more; to experiment with different elements of history that maybe I would never have come in contact with in the past...It’s a fantastic resource; there’s loads of stuff on the website that you can use if you need support, you can go to branch meetings and find out more about your local area and of course you can come to the HA conference.”
Jules Wooding, Learning and Access Officer, Cumbria Museum of Military Life 

"The HA has been there to support me at every stage of my career, keeping me at the heart of the subject community whatever my role. I have enjoyed and felt empowered by the professional development that the HA provides...I find membership of the HA the best way of keeping both my knowledge and my skills up to date. It also helps me to ensure that my history department are the best they can be."  
Simon Harrison, Head teacher, Crofton School
