    I'm going for a history lecturer interview next week and have to prepare a presentation on challenges in history education at secondary level - i would be really interested to hear people's views. Ideas I have include making history relevant and accessible and how to deliver both content (particularly with the content-heavy GCSEs) and second-order concepts.

    I would be really interested in hearing people's views and/or following up links to any articles on this.

    many thanks

    I retired some years ago, but I'd say that, given the current political crisis (or even 'crises' e.g. Brexit, anti-Semitism in Labour, immigration, fake news etc), you'd be advised to have ideas about how History in schools should (or why it shouldn't) contribute to creating a sense of 'Britishness'...
