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 or in school. Please contact us to discuss further.


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 an activity session
  • Training days on site with opportunities to try out a number of hands-on activities
