History

If History’s your passion, there are always opportunities to teach in Scotland’s secondary schools.

What’s involved?

By studying past events and societies, children learn about the origins of their culture and develop a strong understanding of the modern world.

Scottish schools cover a wide range of topics from Scottish, British, European and world history, looking at significant past events and societies and contextualising their relevance to the modern world.

History teacher training options

History teachers either follow their history degree with a post-graduate Professional Graduate Diploma in Education (PGDE) or study a four-year combined degree in history and education.
