Global Educator and Trainer

I'm Tom Rogers, a passionate and experienced educator from the UK.

I started my professional teaching career as a High School teacher in 2008 and, at the age of 28, went on to become a Head of Department in one of the highest performing schools in the North West of England in 2013. In September 2016, I took up the role of Head of History at O Castro British International School in Vigo, Spain.

I have founded, organised and co-hosted #TMHistoryIcons, the only national TeachMeet for History teachers in the UK. Its inaugural meeting took place in March 2016 in Chester and was attended by more than 100 teachers. The second event took place in April 2017 in the same city with the third scheduled for April 2018. 

I currently write a weekly column for the TES, the largest educational publication in the UK. 

I am the director of RogersHistory, an online educational platform which was used by more than 100 schools and 1000 students in the last academic year. My youtube channel supports students to achieve their academic goals and has accrued 50,000 views. I am followed by more than 6000 educators (and others) on twitter.

I try to bring my passion for teaching and learning into all my Udemy courses. The way in which my courses are planned reflects my current professional role and subject expertise.
