Living History

Living HistoryAlmost thirty members and associates of FACE met in the grand surroundings of the Museum of English Rural Life for a seminar on Living History. 

The first speaker was Jerome Freeman, QCA Adviser for History.  He explained the current situation within the History national curriculum and the changes that are to be implemented.  In particular, he highlighted the development of a hybrid GCSE in History in response to the White Paper published in October 2004.  Delegates identified areas of opportunity for visit providers, such as open farms, to be involved in the new vocational courses.
