School outreach education offer

As schools return, our services are looking at ways that we can still support and stimulate your learning in a different way.
Tameside Cultural Services have been looking at how we can use our years of experience, resources and collections to support schools on your return.

Our Learning Team has developed a programme which offer participants a wide range of activities that are accessible, educational, fun and inspiring. Whilst we are all working differently we have put together an offer that will continue to allow you to access what we do, but in a different way.
We want to use our experience to develop something that genuinely works and will help teachers and educators during what could be a difficult transition.

We want to reach out! Whilst it may prove difficult for you to visit us at our sites we want to find ways to still work with and support our schools.
As schools return, we look to support each school’s efforts to get involved with the rich tapestry of culture and creativity within Borough. Tameside Cultural Services have been looking at how we can best use our years of experience and resources to support schools. We will link in with the Philosophy for Children, as well as the national curriculum and the councils five ways to wellbeing: Connect, Be Active, Take Notice, Keep Learning and Give.                             
Each month we will keep in touch with each school, sharing information relating to our education offer as well as giving further ideas and ways to engage with our offer in the classroom. There will be activities from each of the cultural services teams and we welcome discussion as to how we could best serve our schools and find ways of learning together.
