The United Kingdom has launched one of the most far-reaching and ambitious programmes of teacher professional development in Holocaust education existing in the world today.

The Holocaust Education Development Programme (HEDP) undertook landmark research that provides a more comprehensive empirical portrait of Holocaust education in England's secondary schools than has ever existed before, and has launched a free national programme of teacher professional development designed to address directly the issues and challenges identified by this research.
