You are now responsible for passing on what you have learned to students at your college and your local community. You've been involved in a unique project; we sincerely hope you'll be enthusiastic about helping others to benefit from your involvement.
Where do you go from here?
1. Speak to your LFA partner and co-ordinating teacher about what your plans are and show them your A3 Next Steps Planner which you will have started to complete at the Follow-up Seminar.
2. Decide what you want to do and create some deadlines to work towards – When will you finalise details with a teacher? When will you have everything prepared by? When will you deliver on your plans?
4. Submit your Next Steps by uploading them to http://www.het.org.uk/next-steps-submission/ by the deadline given in your Follow-up email. Include the work submission form (signed), a 500 word reflective statement* and evidence** of your Next Steps. You can upload a maximum of 6 documents (Word, jpeg and PDF only) – we do not accept PowerPoints, so please take one or two screen grabs and include these in a Word document.
6. Upon completing your Next Steps you will become a Holocaust Educational Trust Ambassador.
Don't forget to submit your Next Steps work to the Holocaust Educational Trust team. If you're successful you can earn 3 ASDAN credits, and receive a credit rated certificate – which will look great on UCAS or job applications!
If you would like to arrange for a Holocaust survivor to speak at your school please fill out this form and someone from the Outreach team will get in touch.
Readings and photographs from the Lessons from Auschwitz Project
Below you'll find a few readings and photographs that might be useful in your Next Steps. If there are any resources that you can't see below, but would like to use, please get in contact with the Next Steps team. Remember to ensure that your Next Steps and the resources you use are appropriate for your audience. Contact us, read these guidelines or speak to a teacher for advice on this.
