Teachers

We work closely with our teachers to help them meet national curriculum requirements and to provide an enriching and memorable experience for their students. If you would like to work with us at Derby Museums to help with planning and delivery of projects and themes, we’re more than happy to talk, and we can often tailor our sessions to meet the needs of different age group and project and curriculum requirements. You can speak to us via telephone and email – but we really like to meet our teachers face-to-face!

For more information on working with Derby Museums, please contact our Formal Learning Programmer, Cristina Plant on Cristina@derbymuseums.org / 01332 642236


Feedback from local teachers:

“Our children were totally enthralled and inspired by the learning experiences and exhibits in the Nature Room, Archaeology Room and World Cultures including the mummies. We have used our visit to the museum in school to develop the children’s’ learning.”

“Today was great, the children really enjoyed it and it was a great start to our topic.”

“The children absolutely loved their trip to the museum and they were so engaged and excited by the workshops they took part in. I will get in touch soon so that I can book up for next year!”

“The children had a great time and have clearly learned much about different aspects of Egyptian life. They particularly enjoyed the dancing!”

“A brilliant experience and we would 100% come again!”
