The History route is designed to equip all trainees to teach history across at Key stages 3 and  4 and at post 16

The subject specific element of the course will encourage trainees to become thoughtful  reflective and critical practioners who are aware of contemporary debates concerning teaching and learning History. Trainees will be  given opportunities to develop skills to motivate and inspire pupils to become successful  historians across the key stages.

The subject specific element of the course is delivered at our Bognor Regis Campus.  The subject specific sessions are complemented by a Professional Studies programme, which is also based at Bognor Regis. 

For further information, please see our course pages
