How to use this site
This is the education website for The National Archives. The website is the home of our online resources, formerly Learning Curve, and our award winning on-site education service.
From this website you can book any of our exciting on-site workshops in which your students will be able to work with original historical documents.
If your school is too far away to visit The National Archives, some of these workshops are available as videoconferences. We also offer a number of our sessions online through the virtual classroom. Finally, you can also book INSET sessions from here.
Continuing professional development
We are also planning to add material to support the continuing professional development of history teachers, so keep an eye on the website for more material!
You can use this site to find a huge range of online learning resources to support the National Curriculum in history from key stage 1 to 5.
There are many large-scale topic sites packed with original sources and activities, as well as more than 50 lessons based on documents from our collections, a podcast series and an award-winning film website called Focus on Film with a film archive and teaching activities.
