    UK Parliament's Education Team have added new history resources to the TES resources platform. There are lesson plans, videos and presentations for all ages, many of which could be useful for home learning.

    Explore them here.

    Some recent lesson plans focus on:
    • World War 2 (perfect for the upcoming 75th VE day on 8 May)
    • Votes for women
    • World War 1
    There are plenty of others on a variety of topics, and more to be added shortly.

    Wa totally unaware of these, thanks for sharing. Enjoyed the Magna Carta Video. Some will be creeping into my teaching I am sure.

    Glad to hear you found them useful! There are lots more resources and CPD opportunities on https://learning.parliament.uk

    We also recently posted on the forum about a free virtual seminar: "Parliamentary Scrutiny: Challenges and Choices" scheduled for Thursday 11 June, 10:30-12:00. Hope it's of interest.

    This looks really good. When I am in a position to take advantage of these, I will.

    Thanks for your question. These initial teacher training workshops are led by Parliamentary staff. Previously, this was done either in teacher training provider centres, or on the Parliamentary estate, but due to Covid-19 we are now delivering online. It is aimed at university BA/BEd/PGCE groups or SCITTs (school-centred initial teacher training). If you're interested in whole-staff training (minimum 25 teachers), please email engage@parliament.uk

    Thanks for this. I am very interested but I'm not sure if I can find 24 like minded people. However I will run it past the powers that be and see what I can do.
