This is a complex role-play activity that takes place off-timetable, combining both GCSE and post-16 historians. Students participate in teams, taking on the roles of six nations in 1919: proposing motions, debating and voting on the terms of the Treaty of Versailles. The rules of the competition allow the Chair to penalise any teams for making empathetic or anachronistic errors. The project also includes an online forum where teams can plan secretly in advance and communicate for the duration of the project.
The video above includes a number of films taken from various years of the project. The films were made by the student media team, who also play a role in the conference.
