Professional Development for Teachers
Teaching the Holocaust can be daunting. The amount of information can be overwhelming and time available can be limited. Further, the Holocaust is a dark period in human history, how does one teach with sensitivity and not traumatise students? The Jewish Holocaust Centre is here to help! We offer professional development courses, as well as partner with organisations to deliver learning outcomes.
We are here to support you. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org if we can be of any assistance.
