History teacher training

Understanding the links between past and present is important for a good understanding of the condition of being human. A career as a history teacher will give you the chance to excite children about the inescapable influence of history and its connections through time.

"I love teaching history because it ignites students love for the past and opens doors to intellectual curiosity."



If you choose to train to teach history, you could be eligible for a tax-free training bursary of £9,000.
