Atlantic 75 Seaside Project

During an eight-month period in 2014, Lisa supported Sheringham Museum in Norfolk in developing a new Learning and Education Activity Plan to enable schools engagement.

Work was undertaken as part of the development of the Museum’s Round Two application to the National Lottery Heritage Fund and included reviewing the existing offer for schools, to understand what was currently being achieved.

The consultancy support for Sheringham Museum also involved, interviewing and forming new partnerships with local stakeholders including schools and higher education providers, who had not used the museum previously to explore joint programming opportunities and improvements. Along with engaging with a local SEN school to develop outline ideas for an SEN programme at the museum.

Research and findings from the consultation were then utilised to create a suite of learning resources focussing on renewable energy and the marine environment, which provide strong national curriculum links. A final report was produced, which consolidated the research and provided suggestions and recommendations which underpinned the museum’s successful Round Two Application to the NLHF.
