Historical thinking underpins all the dimensions in our vision.

The programme is both highly practical and deeply theoretical. It engages student teachers with a wide range of inspirational thinking and outstanding practice in history education. It encourages critical reflection and deep thought about the purpose of history education, the nature of the history curriculum and the value of different pedagogical strategies.
