This is a good subject to choose if you want to keep your options open. You can become a journalist, a lawyer, or work in advertising, the media, and the arts, but scientists, doctors etc. also need the valuable skills History teaches you. History is valued by employers and educators as a ‘gold standard’ subject - you develop valuable, transferable key skills such as using explanations and arguments carefully; weighing up evidence; debating; showing empathy; and thinking for yourself.
History is an excellent, adaptable qualification to give you the life skills to support any career or further study. It shows you have the critical research and writing skills to tackle any problem and work with facts and evidence. It is a subject that goes beyond just learning for the exam to provide you with knowledge, skills and understanding for any career. It is taught by experienced, specialist History staff who love their subject.
