“The past causes the present, and so the future.”
History helps us understand change and how the society we live in came to be. It also helps understand what has caused mistakes in the past so as a society we can try to prevent such actions happening again. At KBA students look at historical societies from Prehistoric Man to modern times and become equipped with a range of skills that are transferable and highly valued by employers and make any student a good prospect. For example:
- Asking questions
- Making Judgements
- Problem solving
- Report writing skills
- Critical analysis
- Your ability to communicate: both spoken and written.
- Logical thought processes
- Understanding people
Students who study History can progress into the following careers: Law, journalism, broadcasting, civil service, teaching, police, publishing, personnel work, banking, management, social work, insurance, accountancy and nursing. These are just a selection of careers History empowers students to access a future in.
