Secondary: Experienced teacher and head of department

Hugh Richards has taught history for 6 years (at the time of application) and has recently been appointed head of department in a research school – a role that he thoroughly enjoys.

Hugh has submitted his statement and has cited supporting evidence in brackets where appropriate. However, he has also sub-divided his statement into headings relating to his pedagogy, subject expertise and development priorities to provide a clearly structured and targeted statement.

The panel felt this to be a well organised and well-structured application. It contained an important combination of commitment to history learning and subject-specific professional development/pedagogical thinking in conjunction with the Research Schools emphasis on more generic research-based principles. Also noted was Hugh’s role within York Clio and strong evidence of his commitment to enriching history.

Attached below you will find Hugh’s 1000 word statement plus 15 pieces of evidence and a CPD log.
