Programme Overview

Do you worry about how to teach about the Holocaust? This intensive MA-level course will provide practical resources and pedagogical guidance and for teaching the Holocaust. Sessions will be academically rigorous and interactive, advancing subject knowledge whilst ensuring focus on practical application in the classroom.

Transferrable credits. This course is accredited at MA level by the University of Winchester. Participation will form part of a 20-credit module - credits which can be transferred or applied to a full MA programme if you choose.

Face-to-face and online learning. Educational sessions will be delivered by experts from the Holocaust Educational Trust and prominent academics engaging with the latest scholarship on the Holocaust. Additionally, participants will be supported throughout the module via an online Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). The VLE will enable you to communicate with colleagues and course leaders. Introductory readings and post-course reflections will simulate discussions and support you in your evaluations of classroom practice.

Who Should Apply?

The programme has been designed for teachers who wish to explore the Holocaust through a variety of subjects including History, Citizenship/PSHE, Religious Education/Philosophy and English.
