Local support through Beacon Schools

Beacon Schools serve as dynamic hubs co-ordinating a network of local schools, helping them to develop confidence, proficiency and excellence in Holocaust teaching and learning.

UCL’s Beacon School programme helps to develop the leadership potential of school staff. Middle Leaders such as Heads of Department have opportunities for career progression as the Beacon School lead teachers, playing a major role in curriculum and school development.

Each year, lead teachers from 15 schools participate in a fully-funded residential seminar at UCL and a study visit to Poland.
