King's academics appointed to expert panel
A King’s academic has been appointed chair of an expert panel which will be advising the government on the development of a model history curriculum.
Dr Michael Kandiah, lecturer in contemporary British history, will lead a group of teaching, history and curriculum design specialists as they develop detailed guidance for the teaching of history in the nation’s schools.
Toby Green, professor of precolonial and lusophone African history and culture at King’s, has also been appointed to the panel and will work alongside Dr Kandiah.
Dr Kandiah said: “I am honoured to have been appointed to lead an outstanding panel of experts and I am looking forward to beginning work on the model curriculum, which I hope will serve as a foundation for subsequent development of the national history curriculum.”
The panel has been convened by the Department of Education and the work is scheduled to be completed by 2024.
