We would recommend that trainees attend one of the free scheduled online training sessions, ‘An Introduction to the Holocaust Educational Trust’. This 90-minute session will introduce them to the work of the Trust and to the pedagogical guidelines which underpin our work.

It will next be repeated on the following dates:  

  • Tuesday 9 March (11.00 – 12.30)
  • Friday 12 March (16:00 – 17.30)
