AQA

We believe in the importance of not just learning history, but learning from history. Understanding past events and people and their significance in shaping our lives today is a valuable skill and studying history gives students a better insight into the modern world.  That’s why we’ve worked with teachers to create our History specifications. We’ve taken the best topics from our current history courses and developed new and exciting topics that you’ll enjoy teaching and your students will find engaging. Also the flexible structure of our specifications gives you the choice and flexibility to teach the history you want to teach. Find out more by visiting aqa.org.uk/subjects/history
