'It was great to speak to the people who run the activities and hear exactly what they do. The air raid (in the museum's cellars) was very evocative.' 

- Teacher from St Michael's Church School, Peterborough

'The depth and breadth of the information was incredible... I am motivated and inspired!'

- Teacher trainee

Our expert heritage education team have a proven track record in raising awareness, inspiration and confidence in the teaching of local history across the key stages, from primary to secondary education. Many of our education team are current or former teachers with experience of working in mainstream schools and therefore have a firsthand understanding of how busy teachers' schedules can be.

For this reason, we'll come directly to you to offer these free CPD sessions on teaching local history as part of our commitment to making things easier for you. 

During our visit, our team of qualified teaching professionals will bring along a range of historical objects that tell the story of Peterborough’s history - from the prehistoric to the present day - and demonstrate how these can be used to inspire learning of local history both in and outside of the classroom.

Your staff will also get a great opportunity to ask our team any questions about Vivacity's Heritage learning programme - this is a perfect chance for us to listen to the biggest challenges you are facing so we can continue to shape Vivacity’s Heritage learning programme to best support you.

We can also deliver these free CPD sessions at Peterborough Museum with extra behind the scenes opportunities, including a free ghost tour, a visit to the Priestgate Vaults or a Living History experience.
