What you'll study

The course

You will gain a recognised sector qualification plus practical experience in the planning and delivery of heritage education activities.

The key to the Postgraduate Certificate qualification is learning by doing and therefore the core of the curriculum is the completion of a work-based project. You will be involved in all aspects of the planning and implementation of the project, identifying and evaluating resources, identifying aims, objectives and outcomes, developing a project timetable, and identifying relevant finances.

The project

You will gain hand-on practical experience working on The Education Syndicate (ES) project which is an Arts Council England partnership project in association with The National Centre for Citizenship and the Law (NCCL) based at the Galleries of Justice Museum in Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University.

The Education Syndicate (ES) project will creatively engage young people with heritage in the East Midlands delivering to pupils with three partner museums in the region.

Attendance

You will attend classes two days a week until January. After this you will begin to deliver live education sessions to school groups through to March.

How am I assessed?

You will be assessed through the delivery of the project and the development of a professional portfolio.
