Over 1,626 British educators have participated in our professional development programmes since 2005 when Facing History opened an office in London. Our office serves educators across the country and also acts as the organisation’s international hub.
Facing History has facilitated workshops at institutions of higher education, including the Institute of Education at the University of London, the University of the West of England, and Reading and Southampton universities. We have worked in partnership with the Imperial War Museum, Faith Matters, and St. Ethelburga’s Centre for Reconciliation and Peace.
Recognising the uniqueness of each school and borough, Facing History uses various training models for flexible implementation of our courses. Central to our work is a five-day seminar on the Holocaust and Human Behaviour. This professional development opportunity brings together British educators with teachers from around the world, including Northern Ireland, Rwanda, South Africa, Israel, Poland, and Mexico. Facing History also offers free workshops, both in person and online, for international teachers and administrators throughout the academic year.
Many schools find Facing History to be an invaluable partner in meeting the requirements of England's National Curriculum. Contact the London office to find out how Facing History can help you meet your National Curriculum goals.
