Every year, the UCL Centre for Holocaust Education look to recruit up to 20 secondary schools in England committed to enhancing teaching and learning about the Holocaust. UCL Beacon Schools in Holocaust Education will become dynamic hubs serving a network of local schools and will partner with the Centre to improve teaching standards, raise pupil achievement, and strengthen SMSC provision.
This week the Centre welcomed teachers from the 2018 Beacon Schools to take part in the residential programme.
Professor Stuart Foster, Executive Director of the Centre for Holocaust Education said:
“It has been a privilege to engage with an exceptional group of inspirational teachers who have devoted 5 days of their precious time to attend our research-informed Beacon School Residential in London. These highly committed teachers are working with Centre staff to address the challenges and issues in effectively teaching about the Holocaust. The quality of debate and discussion has been excellent, and everyone is thoughtfully considering the practical classroom implications of UCL research. Rest assured, our students’ education is safe in the hands of these outstanding educators!”
