Schools, colleges and higher education

MLA North West is committed to working in partnership with museums, libraries and archives in order to raise awareness of the contribution our sector can make to formal education. Our sector can raise attainment and enable people to develop and equip themselves with the skills, knowledge and personal qualities needed for life and work.

We believe that museums, libraries and archives play a significant role in school education, helping deliver a creative and exciting national curriculum.

MLA North West has produced a research report which offers an insight into the current educational climate in schools, describing the main initiatives and stakeholders. This report was commissioned as part of the Education Programme Delivery Plan (EPDP) for the North West Museums’ Hub. However it also offers a valuable insight for libraries, archives and museums into the issues affecting schools. Please click here to download the EPDP research report.
