Teaching The Holocaust – Certificate in Holocaust Education
Study visits to Krakow and Auschwitz-Birkenau – Berlin – International School for Holocaust Studies in Yad Vashem, Jerusalem.
Over the years, we have learned that the Holocaust may be a daunting subject for some teachers. It seems vast and complex and difficult to bring into the classroom. However, HETI’s carefully structured teacher education programmes help de-mystify it and make it accessible for teachers from any discipline so that they can bring it to their students with competence and confidence.
Teachers of English, RE, CSPE, History, Transition Year, Languages, Mathematics, Media Studies and more, have all participated in our teacher education programmes. They have benefitted from expanding their knowledge through insightful lectures, workshops, seminars, practical tuition and methodologies, and informative study visits.
Working with international Holocaust scholars and educators, HETI provides information, tools skills and materials to help teachers address the Holocaust in practical and constructive ways. Excellent resources accompany all of our programmes and HETI educators are on hand to provide constant incremental support.
All HETI teacher education programmes are highly subsidised which allows us to offer them at very fair prices. We are pleased to facilitate a payment plan which may prove helpful. The Certificate in Holocaust Education (awarded by Trinity College Dublin) may qualify for the Teacher Fee Refund Scheme. See each programme for specific fees
HETI programmes can be undertaken independently or as part of the Certificate in Holocaust Education. In August each year, Irish teachers have the opportunity to work with international scholars for three days on the Teaching the Holocaust programme. Study visits to Krakow, Berlin and Yad Vashem all provide participants with the opportunity to develop a personal understanding of the Holocaust which they can share with their students and in their working environments.
Participating in HETI programmes can be stimulating, hard work, challenging and fascinating. It is an opportunity to make new friends and to share a common interest in a very important subject. We invite you to look at our programmes on our website www.hetireland.org or email the HETI office firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us by telephone to speak to our staff who would be pleased to answer any queries. +3531 6690593
