Quality and relevance was great. It was really helpful to have so many things so closely linked to the syllabus. The sources were all related and incredibly helpful. This is a great course for anyone starting to teach the yr12 core for the first time.

Great! Everything was easy to access and navigate and super relevant to the core topic in ancient history

The content was all relevant to the topic. Sometimes it was very similar to textbook content, and it would have been good to include more teaching notes than simply content that needs to be taught.

The course was extremely relevant. The quality could be slightly improved – not all images had a caption and there was one question/task that did not make sense to me. This course was extremely helpful in reinforcing my understanding of the course content, whilst also providing a great range of sources and learning activities.

Extremely relevant – it covered the syllabus dot points and included downloadable teaching activities which will be time saving and pegagoically sound. This was an excellent beginner course for new teachers of Pompeii and Herculaneum or a refresher course for old hands with some great teaching tips and resources included.
