Over 150 free resources, created by artists and subject experts, explore the stories of those who have shaped British history and society today. All linked to the National Curriculum, the learning and video resources are designed to support those studying and teaching Art and Design and History through portraiture.
The resources respond to the findings of a survey conducted by the National Portrait Gallery which revealed that educators are proactively seeking better resources to help them teach about under-represented stories related to identity and Black British history, the British Empire, colonialism and migration.
Thomas Jones, a Lecturer in Art and Design Education at IOE, UCL’s Faculty of Education and Society, worked as part of the project advisory group to develop the hub, and advised on the content that should form the free resources.
Lesley Burgess, Honorary Associate Professor at IOE, acted as a content advisor in the hub’s learning resource production team.
