‘You can’t interpret the world without understanding theHolocaust.’
History Teacher, London

In response to demand, the Institute of Education (IOE) has announced new 2012 summer dates for the free of charge Holocaust education programme. 

More than 80% of teachers consider themselves ‘self taught’, having had no ITE or CPD input into how to teach about the Holocaust. Over 75% say they now want high quality professional development. The IOE’s programme suppports teachers with the in-depth knowledge, effective classroom materials and confidence needed to help students gain a deep understanding of one of the most important events in modern times.

There is a wealth of evidence to show the impact of the programme on teachers’ confidence, enthusiasm and substantive knowledge. Teachers write and speak enthusiastically about:Institute of Education - Holocaust Education CPD

  • a deeper level of understanding
  • depth of knowledge
  • confidence to try new approaches
  • a renewed enthusiasm for teaching

Unlike other such programmes I have attended, this was by far the more relevant and practical – giving concrete ideas about how complexity can be used in the classroom, without being overwhelming, and with resources that can be tried out in the classroom straightaway.’
