Online Applications 

Once you have purchased CTHist, all CTHist users will have access to a file upload provided in your My HA space. Simply log in to your HA account and enter "My HA." Please upload your portfolio on your file upload along with your completed application form (downloadable at the bottom of this page) and other documentation specified in the application checklist below. 

Please email to inform us that you consider your application to be complete and ready for assessment. This should be on or before the deadline for the assessment window for which you are applying - see assessment deadlines here 

See also the 'Guidance on making your CTHist application', 'Chartered Teacher Pathways' and 'CPD requirements' PDFs attached at the bottom of this page. 

Postal Applications 

We will accept postal applications. You will need to download and complete all relevant documentation and gather hard copies of your evidence to post along with your printed and completed application documents. Please note that for postal applications, you will need to supply 3 copies of all documents in your application.

Please send any postal applications to 59a Kennington Park Road London SE11 4JH, clearly marking “Chartered Teacher” on your envelope. All postal applications must be received by the deadline for any given application window in order to be included in that cycle. 

Exceptional Circumstances

If your circumstances make it difficult for you to continue to meet the criteria, you will need to let us know. We will consider each case individually on its merits. In some circumstances such as a prolonged illness, maternity or paternity leave, it is be possible to freeze your status until such time as you return to work as long as you continue to fulfil the criteria.  A change of role away from history educator and retirement will usually remove the eligibility to be a Chartered History Teacher. Please refer to our full terms and conditions.
