As you gain and understand historical knowledge, you will learn to employ a range of historical skills (e.g. evaluation of sources) and you will gain expertise in transferable skills like research, evaluating and forming arguments, gathering information as well as presentational skills.  The study of history will stimulate a genuine interest in the past and lay the foundations for what may become a lasting and absorbing leisure pursuit in adult life.
