This bespoke 4-part course is open to two post-16 students in every state school in England. Places on the project, costing just £59, are extremely limited and will be offered on a first come, first served basis. One teacher is also able to apply for a space. Please note that teacher spaces are extremely limited and will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis, with priority given to those attending with schools which have not participated on Lessons from Auschwitz in the past and those who will be supporting student with additional needs.
