Risk management for learning
I’m a heritage learning consultant who’s passionate about supporting others to provide inspiring, high quality learning opportunities for visitors.
Sometimes, with all the best will in the world, there just isn’t the time or the team member available in your organisation to research, create and deliver new programmes, prepare that grant application, the teachers’ resource pack or train your team members and everything else that’s on your wish/to do list. I know, I’ve been there and that’s where a consultant like me comes in to help.
The collections, narratives and spaces that we are guardians of provide a multitude of ways to engage and support people of all ages and abilities, whether that is in Early Years development, school visits, service learning opportunities for young people, lifelong learning or just a space to breathe and enjoy. They make a small, memorable and invaluable difference in someone’s life.
I am a trained Playworker, Forest School Leader and Arts Award Advisor who will work with you to create high quality learning opportunities to your heritage site, museum or community space.
Having worked in charities throughout my career I specialise in creating engagement opportunities that help your visitors create special memories when you have a small budget.
