Continuing Professional Development

The British Empire and Commonwealth Museum will be holding two Continuing Professional Development training opportunities, particularly focusing on the Breaking The Chains exhibition. Working with the Museum’s staff, consultants and partners, these events will provide teachers with up-to-date ideas, teaching approaches and theory around teaching citizenship, history and sensitive issues.

  • November 13th 2007, 1.00pm – 4.00pm, CPD for Primary educators.
  • March 7th 2008, 10.00am – 3.00pm, CPD for KS3/PGCE students etc.

To enable teachers to attend these events, the British Empire and Commonwealth Museum can provide up to £50 towards the cost of supply cover for a limited number of teachers. To be eligible for this assistance schools must demonstrate how the issues covered are relevant to their school’s development priorities.

Twilight Sessions

Breaking the Chains will be open to all teachers between 3.00pm and 5.00pm on the last Wednesday of every month. Please come along to see how you could use the exhibition to bring your topic alive.
