About Chris Trevor

After many years of teaching 5-11 year olds (KS1/KS2) and as the Geography, History and Creative cross-curricular Adviser for Cheshire, Chris formed her own freelance consultancy in 2010. She currently supports schools across Stockport, Trafford, Cheshire, Manchester, and other North-west and North-east authorities, to deliver a creative approach to the teaching of Geography and History and in designing their own bespoke curriculums. With family links in Leicestershire and having led courses for the Leicestershire Heads Association, she is now looking forward to widening this to include the Leicestershire and Rutland Teaching School Hub!

She presents subject leader courses, both as an independent consultant and on behalf of the Historical Association nationally, to develop the subject knowledge and practice of how to become effective leaders. She demonstrates how to make History and Geography engaging, whilst meeting the scope and ambition of the National Curriculum and the current Ofsted guidance and inspection framework, so all teachers can provide the best possible education in the humanities for children. Chris firmly believes in the power of practical work in both subjects, using the local area, to help children understand the historical or human and physical geographical processes in their own environment.
