How some people summed up their overall experience at the 2018 SHP Conference…

Top notch!

The best CPD I’ve had.

Excellent CPD, the best I go to all year. Reinvigorates the (history teaching) soul.

Like diving into a revitalising ocean of disciplinary professional development.

An amazing conference. As an NQT this is invaluable. So many thought-provoking sessions and so much to take away for September.

Outstanding, inspiring and passionately-delivered sessions.

Excellent CPD. I always come away with loads of ideas. I’m responsible for whole-school CPD and always share ideas with whole staff in September as so many are transferrable to other subjects.

It was my first time here and I found it thought-provoking, inspirational and exhausting (in a good way!)

Amazing! The SHP Conference just keeps getting better and better. Thank you for reinvigorating my love of history ready for September.

Stimulating, moving, energising. Thank you!

Lovely – thought-provoking, informative, reassuring, challenging, fun

Amazing and inspirational! My first one.

It’s been absolutely brilliant.

Wow. I’ve been immersed in great history teaching for a whole weekend. I’ll be going back to my notes for years to come. Truly inspiring.

Excellent CPD. Lots of strategies to take away and a well-needed injection of enthusiasm. Can’t wait to get planning for September.

An outstanding display of innovation and engagement which has made me feel re-energised and ready to start planning for next year.

Fantastic! Once again providing me with lots to take away and think about.

Absolutely incredible.

Recharged, buzzing and exalted thanks to SHP.

A brilliant experience. A great opportunity to enhance pedagogy and reconnect with subject knowledge.

Excellent, as always. Best CPD all year.

Enlightening and reaffirming, giving a great sense of community amongst history teachers.

This is a lovely history community.


Until next summer – keep your powder dry!
