Cultural entitlement

The programme has three strands:

  1. the creation of an education development programme focussing on the Change for Children Agenda and citizenship and diversity as key themes
  2. Learning Links reciprocal work placement scheme between teachers and museum and archive educators
  3. the maintenance of a North West regional database recording schools’ participation in museum and archive learning activity

DFES/DCMS have stipulated that all strands of the programme deliver the same key outcomes:

  • Demand: A decrease in the number of non-participating schools
  • Supply: An increase in capacity in skills to support education within the Museums and Archives sector
  • Brokerage: The development of services and facilities which, make it easier for schools to access museum and archive education services.

This programme provides another building block towards the aim of providing a comprehensive service for schools across the region and ultimately a cultural entitlement for pupils.

Learning Links 2006-07

Learning Links, now in its third year, is a funded professional development opportunity for museum/archive staff and teachers from “non-participating” schools to spend a minimum of 5 days in each others’ workplace.

A maximum grant of £2000 will be available to each participating museum or archive.

All placements must take place by the end of February 2007.
