As Facing History’s international hub, our London office serves educators across the U.K. and around the world.

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.

    Democracy at Risk: Holocaust and Human Behaviour Seminar

    In today’s world, questions of how to best build and maintain democratic societies that are pluralistic, open, and resilient to violence are more relevant than ever. Studying the Holocaust using Facing History’s approach allows students to wrestle with profound moral questions raised by this history and fosters their skills in ethical reasoning, critical thinking, empathy, and civic engagement—all of which are critical for sustaining democracy. This week long seminar features the fully revised, printed edition of Holocaust and Human Behavior and is intended for History, RE, Citizenship and English teachers as well as other educators interested in this area.
