This advanced subject knowledge course has been designed for school teachers, supplementary school educators, and home schooling parents to provide them with the knowledge and skills to deliver robust and diverse history teaching and curriculum design within their classrooms, centres and homes.
Educators will be given the knowledge and skills they need to confidently introduce or enhance Black British historical narratives in their curriculum design. Covering topics in British history at home and in the former empire taken from the National Curriculum, as well as approaches to African history teaching, educators will learn how to use oral traditions, digital archives, and innovative lesson design to deliver more engaging lessons.
We hope that teaching graduates of this course will go on to make major contributions to curriculum development in their schools as well as on a national and international level. For supplementary educators and home schooling parents, we hope that this course will give you the skills to develop schemes of work that respond to the specific needs of your local communities and families.
