Our 2023 Impact

Thank you for being an essential part of your History teaching community and for supporting, in big ways and small, what we do. 'HTAV' is just a collective term for all the people who become members, come to professional learning events, booklist our textbooks, mentor new teachers, write for Agora, share resources, and so on.

This year, because of you, HTAV has been able to:

  • advocate for History students and teachers with state and national education authorities, and in the media

  • provide curated resources and information for History teachers in twelve Member Bulletins, distributed to over 4,700 members

  • support its members with professional learning events, including two conferences, two History Teaching Masterclasses and events for new and out-of-field teachers

  • produce a range of free resources, including the History-related careers and subject selection information for students and parents

  • offer a day full of expert tips and advice for nearly 800 VCE students preparing for the exams

  • bring together 21 History teachers under the HTAV Peer Mentoring Program

  • publish three issues of Agora, the professional reading journal for History teachers

  • support teachers and students around the state with HTAV textbooks and resources, selling 15,598 HTAV titles

  • provide opportunities for members to extend themselves professionally by writing books and articles, presenting at events, undertaking leadership training, and coordinating History Week activities

  • coordinate Victoria’s participation in the National History Challenge and the Simpson Prize competition.

Your support has enabled all of this – and more – to happen. Thank you.

We acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the First Australians and Traditional Custodians of the lands where we live, learn and work. The HTAV Office is located on the lands of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. These lands were never ceded. We pay our respect to their ancestors and Elders, past and present.
