Teacher CPD: using history and enquiry skills to deepen students’ understanding of conflict   

How do we extract diverse stories from a history using the resources available?

How do we use technology and sources to maximise impact when teaching war and conflict?

Join IWM for a new training and development day with experts from History Education, OFSTED, and more.

Utilising the rich stories and collections of Imperial War Museums this Teacher CPD event will deepen your subject area knowledge and equip you with new tools and ideas to widen students’ understanding of war and conflict.
