Date: Thursday 17th August 2023

Are you new to Heritage Learning or trying to develop a relevant learning offer that schools will want to book?

Without a background in education or teaching it is sometimes difficult to understand how the National Curriculum works and how you can build a learning offer that is relevant to it. This session will offer a whistle stop tour of the National Curriculum and the opportunities and challenges it presents for museums/ historical sites.

It will also give you time to consider ways in which your museums/ historical sites can deliver learning outcomes across different areas of the curriculum.

By the end of the session, delegates will:

Have an understanding of the National Curriculum
Be able to link this to a museum setting
Have an understanding of learning outcomes
Have met other members of the network at a similar position
The event will be facilitated by Mary Sibson, Creative Learning Officer for Creative Learning Services.

Who should attend?

This training is aimed at museum staff and volunteers working with schools.

Maximum two delegates per organisation. Priority will be given to delegates from non-NPO and non-National museums in the West Midlands which are Accredited or officially Working Towards Accreditation.

The workshop will include a presentation, polls, and break out room activity. This online event will be auto-captioned by Zoom. If you would benefit from live captioning or any other form of access support, please answer ‘yes’ to the access requirements question on the booking form and email the WMMD team as early as possible stating the support you require.

All participants will receive an email containing a Zoom link to the training prior to the event. The email will be sent to the email address used for booking. If you have not received an email the day before the event please contact us.

Please note this event is a repeat of the event scheduled for 4 July due to a high level of interest.
