The course is for Museum staff/volunteers who are committed to working in close collaboration with local schools to support them deliver the new curriculum. The introductory session will look at how schools are approaching the new national curriculum and give participants opportunities to start looking at how they could shape their current museum offer to meet the new curriculum requirements.
