Training to teach history

History is an important and popular subject in schools, that all pupils have a right to be taught brilliantly – and history continues to attract the best graduates and professionals. While you train you could be eligible for a training bursary or a salary with School Direct (salaried) or Teach First.

A career in teaching history offers you the chance to pass on your passion and knowledge of the subject every day to pupils.

As a trainee history teacher, you’ll learn the skills needed to enhance your pupils’ understanding of British history and the world as it is today – from the events that shaped civilisations, to the historical figures that made them happen. You’ll discover how to pique students’ curiosity and help them evaluate arguments, analyse trends and appreciate the complexity of societies throughout time.

And once you’ve qualified, you’ll benefit from a competitive starting salary of at least £22,917, or £28,660 in inner London. You'll also have lots of opportunities for rapid career progression and pay increases.
