At Beckford’s Tower we believe that learning never ends and we are proud to provide both formal and informal learning opportunities for adults of all ages.
We work closely with our local higher education partners, Bath Spa University and the University of Bath, to provide valuable hands on learning experiences for undergraduate and postgraduate students across a range of subjects. Through such projects, or work placements, students gain skills, confidence and experience to support future career choices.
For the last three years we have also hosted Open Palace Programme participants at our museums. This programme has been developed by a group of significant heritage and education organisations in the UK committed to providing a first class, first-hand experience of palaces and houses across the UK for international students and emergent professionals in the heritage field.
We also support lifelong learning and regularly welcome visits from a variety of specialist interest and community groups. We can provide introductory talks to complement your group’s visit to the museum – please read our group visit leaflet for more details or contact the Learning & Engagement team on 01225 338727 or via email to enquire about talks.
