National Centre for History Education, Australia

The National Centre for History Education was a federal government online resource for teachers of history. The NCHE was supported by history educators from many fields including historians, curriculum officials, and history educators, as well as by history teachers, heritage specialists and public historians.

Tony Taylor, 2001-2007 Director of the Monash-based National Centre for History Education, developed national history standards (a set of commonly agreed professional expectations) and in late 2008 was involved in drafting the new Australian curriculum guidelines in history.
