If you include volunteers in your education provision, support them in their presentation of workshops for all ages and help them to develop their teaching skills. Time Seekers can provide training sessions for a wide range of education subjects including planning, resourcing, presentation skill and current teaching practices. All sessions would be taught by a qualified teacher.
Get the most out of your education plans and keep your staff up to date with current teaching techniques and practices.
Planning to the National Curriculum
This session would suit attractions which run with limited staff or a large promotion of volunteers. It will run through the principals of the National Curriculum, how it works and how it is implemented in schools. It will then show the group how to choose appropriate workshop objectives, create activities to achieve the objective and develop differential opportunities to appeal to different age groups.
Resources at your Fingertips
This session will help attractions see the value of their collections. They see with fresh eyes what is around them and how it could be used to increase the education provision of the attraction they work or volunteer for. From picture sources to documents and artefacts reimagine your museum planning to include the resources around you.
