Instructor Biography

Thomas Rogers, Global Educator and Trainer

I'm Thomas 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 will take up the role of Head of History at O Castro International School in 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. 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 last academic year.

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.
