Designate a coordinating teacher who will oversee the LFA Project and be the main point of contact between your school/college's students and the Holocaust Educational Trust. The coordinating teacher must complete an application form.

We cannot accept applications made by students. We advise schools not to select students at this time as we may not be able to allocate all schools places.


Student places are allocated as we receive applications with priority given to schools who have not previously participated. Please note that schools that have participated three or more times on the Project will be placed on our reserve list, which will be assigned once the application deadline has passed on a first-come, first-served basis. The reserve list in no way means that schools will not get a place on the course and we strongly encourage these schools to apply each year. Coordinating teachers will be notified by email if they have been assigned places.

Each course has a small number of teacher places; please indicate on the application form if you would like to apply for a teacher place. These are allocated once student places have been assigned - usually one month before the start of the course - and are extremely limited. They are open to all full-time members of teaching staff that have not previously participated in a Lessons from Auschwitz course - including our CPD course.

If you have not received an email response from us within three weeks of submitting your application form please call us on 0207 222 4761 or email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..


Two students must be selected; it is not possible to select one student. Chosen participants must be able to take part in all components of the course.

The coordinating teacher will receive login details, via email, to register the participants on the LFA Project's online registration system. They must submit the names, dates of birth, personal email addresses and contact telephone numbers (mobile number is preferred) of participants. This should be completed promptly after places have been confirmed. Please check your application process for the deadline date. Registration cannot proceed without these details.

The designated participants will then receive their login details by email. They must then access the online registration. The forms need to be completed, signed by the student and the coordinating teacher, and a parent or guardian if the participant is under 18, and returned by email well in advance of the first seminar. Please refer to the application process for the deadline date. Please retain a copy of all forms for your reference. Participants who do not return completed and signed forms will not be permitted to take part.
