The Trust works with Initial Teacher Training providers, through universities, school-centred schemes (SCITT) and employment-based programmes (EBITT), as well as providing Continuing Professional Development and in-service training to experienced school staff.
We partner with local authorities, academy federations and individual schools to deliver regional Continuing Professional Development training seminars. We also regularly work with teaching unions and other educational organisations to support their work and to promote Holocaust education, including engagement with regional and national subject forums, and at teaching workshops and conferences.
Our free, participatory workshops can be delivered as a half-day or full-day session to primary and secondary teachers and trainees across the UK.
All workshops focus on the pedagogical issues surrounding Holocaust education, demonstrate practical ideas and ensure access to our Exploring the Holocaust teaching pack, a comprehensive cross-curricular scheme of work which provides teachers with all of the materials they need to teach the Holocaust successfully.
We deliver training for a variety of curriculum areas, including History, Religious Studies, Citizenship and PSHE, English and the creative arts. Sessions can be targeted for one subject area or delivered with an emphasis on cross-curricular teaching. Our training can provide teachers with an introduction to Holocaust history and pedagogy, or can build on prior learning to explore specific topics such as Pre-war Jewish Life, Resistance, Britain and the Holocaust, or Liberation.
