Free WW1 CPD

“An excellent day. Interesting and thought-provoking – best CPD I have ever had!”

Our core UCL CPD modules explore the theme of 'Taking the battlefields and turning them into classrooms' and are available free to all state-funded secondary schools.

Before going on one of our award-winning battlefield tours you will be expected to complete the core CPD programme.  This one day course designed to help you make the most of your battlefield tour by exploring what you might do to prepare your students, how to make the maximum use of the sites you will visit, and to consider what kind of post visit commemorative project you will set up with your students on your return to school.  You can do this by either attending one of our face to face CPD day events or by completing a short series of core online CPD modules which you can find in our online CPD library.  Feel free to choose the option that best suits your needs.

Beyond this, there is a series of additional optional online CPD modules open to you irrespective of whether you have completed the programme’s core CPD programme. You can complete as many or as few of these as you wish, either before or after you have been on the battlefields tour.

Over time, we will be adding more online CPD modules to this section of the website – feel free to complete any of these and start to really extend your knowledge of the First World War.

Why not expand your horizons by joining our Specialist Leader’s in First World War Education programme and work with us to deliver some of our many leading edge activities. Become a Specialist Leader in First World War education and use this unique opportunity to achieve some of your professional development targets.
