Time to put my history hat on!

Consultancy

It was time to draw on my experience of teaching across the humanities today; some bespoke CPD with a history stance.

Lots of simple, but adaptable strategies. Very helpful for a new Subject Leader! Informative; inspiring; useful ideas.  Enjoyable! Activities …
