Curriculum CPD – History

Empowering the Primary History Leader

Led by Stuart Tiffany (Mr T)


Session 1: Empowering the Primary History Leader – Curriculum, chronology and local history.

This first of two sessions is a carefully curated blend of research, classroom practice, and practical takeaways for History subject leaders and will include:

  • Updates on latest developments, competitions and what’s ‘in the news’ in the world of Primary History.
  • Exploring the importance of a precisely defined Primary History curriculum with substantive and disciplinary knowledge.
  • How using chronology can be utilised to lay out and connect history units (and be seen as a curated narrative with the teacher acting as the narrator of the story).
  • Exploring “How local is local history?”
  • Considerations in reviewing current curriculum offers in individual schools.

Session 2: TBC

The second session will explore a different aspect of History provision and will be agreed based on a needs assessment and feedback from session 1.

This course is being run over 2 sessions. Delegates are expected to ATTEND BOTH SESSIONS.

The sessions are taking place as follows:

SESSION 1: Thursday, 23 January 2025 (13:00-15:30)

SESSION 2: Wednesday, 19 March 2025 (13:00-15:30)

By booking a place on this course, you will secure 1 place on each of the 2 sessions.
