Continuing Professional Development

Our CPD opportunities for teachers, NQTs and Teaching Assistants include sessions on how a museum visit can enhance learning and cross-curricular work. We can also offer tailor-made courses for your staff on site.



Initial Teacher Training

We are keen to work with ITT providers and their students to highlight the unique, cross-curricular and stimulating learning which can take place in museums and demonstrate how museum learning can help deliver key outcomes for schools.


We can offer:

  • Alternative Settings Placements for students with opportunities to run school sessions, plan and run multi-age learning or create resources for schools.
  • Training Days on site with opportunities to try out a number of hands-on activities
  • Partnerships with local universities to enrich their education courses and offer opportunities for students.
