Access Classics was delighted to launch their Classical Studies Transition Year Unit in September 2020. This Unit has been approved by the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment and is freely available to all second-level schools and institutes. The Unit takes a somewhat less-familiar approach to Classics, examining aspects of ancient Cyprus, people and the world around us (such as travel and the natural world), knowledge and advancements in the ancient world, and the echo of the past in the present.
The Unit strongly encourages students to ‘walk in the shoes’ of those in the ancient world and to examine the modern world and their place therein in light of this.
The Unit comprises a manual for teachers and an accompanying PowerPoint (these, and more information, are available under the Transition Year Unit tab). The extensive information and resources therein means that the Unit can be easily taught by non-experts.
