CPD Network for teachers

A Primary History Teacher network, developed with current practitioners and Warwickshire Heritage Learning.

Following a consultation process with current practitioners, and partially funded by West Midlands Museum Development, we piloted the Warwickshire Heritage Learning Primary History Teacher Network.

We aim to help invigorate History curriculums, provide access to History experts and share ideas with like-minded individuals in a mutually beneficial collaboration between schools and Warwickshire Heritage Learning.
