Kieran HughesHost: Kieran is a History teacher at a secondary school in Buckinghamshire. He studied at Reading University for his History degree, at Oxford Brookes for his MA in History and Bucks New University for his teacher training.

The League of Nations was founded in 1920. In this class, students will look at why the League of Nations was started and who started the League. They will also look through a timeline in different parts and consider why some elements which were introduced at the beginning later became a problem. This is a useful class for students in Years 10 and 11 who are covering the subject but younger students may find it an interesting class!
