Free Holocaust Education Workshop for Scottish Teachers

by | Jun 1, 2023 | News, Opportunities

The Holocaust Educational Trust will be hosting Lessons from Auschwitz, a Career-Long Professional Learning workshop for Scottish Teachers, in-person at the SJHC on Sunday 25th June.

The programme of sessions at the CLPL event will introduce teachers to organisations working across Scotland in order to raise awareness of teaching resources, travelling exhibitions, site visits and walking tours which can be utilized to enhance student learning.

“The aim of the workshop is to explore how schools can engage in teaching about the Holocaust through the Scottish curriculum. By integrating teaching about the Holocaust holistically across our primary and secondary schools we can ensure that all pupils have the skills to examine a defining moment in human history which raises fundamental questions about human identity, behaviour and ethics.” – Holocaust Educational Trust

The workshops will cover: using HET’s free online resources, local history projects such as Erika’s Suitcase and The Jane Haining Project, integrating audio and video testimonies into learning through the Gathering the Voices project, and the work of the SJHC School Visit programme. There will also be an opportunity to tour Garnethill Synagogue and SJHC displays, and to view material from the Scottish Jewish Archives Centre.

Who can attend?
Teachers and trainees of all subject areas are welcome to attend, whether currently in post or training across Scotland.

Will it be online?
If you can’t make it in-person, HET will also be running the event as two online sessions on Tuesday 20th  (16:30 – 18:30) and Wednesday 21st June (16:30-18:30)

How much are tickets?
Both the online and in-person events are free to attend. Lunch and refreshments will be provided at the in-person event.
