Are you interested in starting a career in museum education?
Thinking about it but don’t know where to start?
Here is your chance to be involved in a Heritage Lottery Funded partnership project with one of the most important heritage organisations in the country, The National Centre for Citizenship and the Law (NCCL), based at the Galleries of Justice Museum, in Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University.
- Get a recognised sector qualification
- Practical experience
- Paid course fees and project relevant travel expenses*
- Get practical experience in the planning and delivery of heritage education activities
What is the qualification?
NTU’s Professional Certificate in Heritage and Tourism
“…whoever came up with the idea for the course was a genius.”
(Renaissance East Midlands, Interim evaluation report on the Professional Certificate in Heritage Tourism, 2011, p.6)
The key to the qualification is ‘learning by doing’ and therefore the core of the curriculum is the completion of a work-based project. The student 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.
What is the Project?
The Public Legal Education Syndicate (PLES) project will creatively engage young people with history of the justice system in the East Midlands delivering to pupils in historic courtrooms in Oakham, Leicester and Northampton.
When does it start?
Induction will be on Tuesday 7 January 2014 at Nottingham Trent University.
If you cannot attend but would still be interested in the course, please contact Neville Stankley to discuss alternative options.
How much will it cost?
There are a number of bursaries available to cover all course fees. These are offered on a first come first served basis only. So if you are interested apply straight away. If not the cost will be approximately £1,600.
How long does it last?
The requirement will be to attend classes one day a week. This will be on Tuesdays until Easter. After Easter you will begin to delivery live education sessions to school groups through to June.
How am I assessed?
You will be assessed through the delivery of the project and the development of a professional portfolio.
