Chartered Teacher of History programme

Chartered Teacher of History (CTHist) status is designed to ensure that teachers who choose to remain within the classroom have their contributions and expertise recognised and to provide an assurance for senior leaders that history staff are committed to their continued development. This accreditation confers a distinction on its holder in recognition of a high level of expertise in both historical knowledge and understanding and age-appropriate pedagogy, as well as a commitment to continued development in these areas. It follows the same rigorous standards of other successful Chartered Teacher schemes.
