The years between 1918 and 1939, also known as the Inter War Years, are a fascinating period of history, swinging from "never again" to the start of another World War. Our Inter War Years GCSE podcast series not only brings this alive but also sets out everything you will need to know for both your coursework and your exams. Starting from the end of World War 1 it examines the Peace Treaties and how fair they were, whether or not the League of Nations was successful and why international peace had collapsed by 1939. Each podcast will help address these questions and give you enough detail to help prepare for your exams and keep on top of your coursework.

Audiopi has been very useful and I am singing your praises. Our students achieved 93% grades 4-9 at literature - and the podcasts really helped our pupils to go into the exams feeling confident about the texts.Also, the podcasts are very engaging and particularly useful for helping pupils who struggle with reading chunks of text, such as those with dyslexia
I like the way I can listen to a debate on the way home from school; I don’t have to be in a classroom or at a desk!
“We are loving the podcasts! I have got all my history students into them and they can't quite believe their luck.”
“Since purchasing Audiopi, we have seen a large growth in both motivation and progress within our students. A truly valuable resource for any student to use, regardless of ability”
"I came top of the class all thanks to Audiopi"
"As an English Teacher I can confidently say that every English Teacher would love to have Audiopi”
Audiopi has brought a different dimension to pupil revision. We were particularly impressed by the combination of core examination content and involvement of high profile historians; highly recommended!”
“Amazingly helpful. I’m a Year 10 student who has had this bought for me, it is very helpful and has shown me more POV’s on the poems. 10/10 would recommend.
