About this INSET

This course is aimed at history coordinators who want to further improve the quality of this important subject in their schools. Along with a range of new ideas, including the very latest thinking from Ofsted and educational researchers, the training draws on and develops ideas from three short courses: Composites and Components; Disciplinary Knowledge in History; and Thirty Second Challenge.

By attending this course you will:

  • Use Ofsted’s own curriculum design model to develop a more sophisticated history provision in your school
  • Find out what ‘disciplinary knowledge’ means in history, and how you can teach it
  • Explore practical games and activities that support your children in historical talk, and push them towards ‘greater depth’


  • SLT, curriculum leads, history coordinators
  • Primary, Middle and Special schools
